Bundle Up

Yes, it is that time of the season where temperatures get a bit nippy, but that doesn’t matter when you have your hat and mitts on! Head to Island Books and Crafts and pick up locally-made gloves. For a head to toe winter wear makeover, Bird’s Eye Outfitters has you covered in all of the latest gear to keep you toasty for your upcoming adventures!

Warm-Up and Perk-Up!

Head down Portage Avenue and take a pit stop at Superior Cafe for a freshly made pastry and a warm sweet treat to keep you fueled up and cozy from the inside out.

Adrenaline Rush Anyone?

Ready to get your blood pumping? Head up to the Sault Seal Recreation Area and go tubing on Minneapolis Hill! If fast-paced action isn’t your speed, you can head over to the Lynn Trails and do some low-key hiking or snowshoeing while admiring the towering evergreens and winter birds that call this trail home.

More food anyone?
Palace Fajitas

Is there any better way to end a day of winter fun than with a yummy drink and even yummier fare? Your day downtown would not be complete without a delicious meal from The Palace Saloon.
