Really Minnesota?

Yep. You betcha.

Winter is long in Minnesota. We look forward to ice off, because it's the beginning of summer and all the amazing things that come with a Minnesota summer.

The same is true in the winter when the lakes start to freeze. The sleds, skates, hockey nets and ice fishing gear come out!

We enjoy all our amazing seasons. But if you aren't tough enough for a visit to northern Minnesota in the winter...we totally get it. ;-)
