Struggling with the winter blahs? Take advantage of one of the mildest winters in years with a few days in Sault Ste. Marie! Let me show you DSC_3566how to make a trip to the Sault a romantic excursion for a couple or a great surprise for the whole family.

Lucky guys know that planning a surprise of any kind is a sure winner! Room accommodations, dinner reservations, all wrapped up in a box with a new hat, mittens, and other necessary winter accessories. Maybe those accessories include a new pair of cross country skies to take advantage of an evening glide through the lit Algonquin Ski Trail.

Ladies don’t hesitate to plan a winter escape, too. This might be a perfect excuse to get away for a weekend and explore the snowmobile trails that span from Sault Ste. Marie to the west end of the Upper Peninsula. With the well groomed trails and nightlife in the Sault though why ride anywhere else?

Sault Ste. Marie isn’t just for couples. Families can plan a winter escape and find fun things to do in The Soo! Take a slide down the tubing

Sault Seal hills at Sault Seal Recreation Area and let the tow ropes do the work getting the kids back up the hill. Make a stop in the shallet for a snack and a warm up then do it all again and again and again…

T Falls winter ice Raines PhotographyMost families have made the summer trip to visit the Upper Peninsula waterfalls but did you know that Tahquamenon Falls is open to the public during the winter too? An adventure to the falls will give the kids something to talk about on Monday with the frozen cascade and amazing scenery. Need a warm up? Stop in the Tahquamenon Falls Brewery & Pub for a hot beverage of a full amazing meal.

Whether it’s just the two of you or the whole family there are activities to beat the winter blahs in Sault Ste. Marie!
