Plan your trip to Minnesota
Resorts and Lodges in Minnesota
Minnesota is an ideal destination for planning a fun-filled family getaway in the heart of the Midwest. The Land of 10,000 Lakes certainly lives up to it’s name if you are looking for a family vacation on the water. Take a trip up to the North Shore and take in the picturesque beauty of Lake Superior, or head further north to the Boundary Waters. If you are looking for more of a metropolitan getaway, try Minneapolis/St. Paul area where you can visit one of the nation’s largest shopping centers, Mall of America, or take in a baseball game at the home of the 2014 MLB All Star Game, Target Field. Let your family experience the Northwoods beauty of central and northern Minnesota, or head to the Twin Cities for your own unique “big city” getaway.
