Winter Wonderland Weekend Getaway Ideas

We are truly in our element when the weather is cold, and we love getting out on the weekends. Here are some weekend getaway ideas around the Minneapolis region:

Mall of America --
When you’re feeling like you need to get out of the house, visit this behemoth of a mega-mall with its 500 stores, restaurants, and a wedding chapel. While there, you can enjoy the thrill rides of Nickelodeon Universe or visit the Sea Life Minnesota Aquarium.

St. Paul Winter Carnival -- January 24 - February 3, 2019
Head to downtown St. Paul for a fun time with friends and family. This festival has a lot going on, and most of them are free. Visit the website for a complete schedule.

Watch a Minnesota Wild Hockey Game -- 
You can find the schedule for Minnesota Wild here if you want to catch a home game in Saint Paul.

Outdoor Adventures --
There are so many activities during winter time. Go dog-sledding, cross-country skiing, fat-tire biking, ice skating, ice climbing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing.

Catch a Show at the Theater -- 
Visit Minneapolis for live music and theater productions. From musical shows to comedy improv, everyone can find great entertainment in this area. 

Visit Paisley Park --
Prince was beloved in Minneapolis and around the world. His memory lives on in the Paisley Park Tours, where you can see where he recorded some of his biggest hit songs.

Before you hit the road for the weekend, we invite you to visit us at Nordgren Automotive for preventive maintenance. If you need your battery, starter, radiator, tires, or windshield inspected or repaired, or any other scheduled maintenance or repair, you can make sure your car is always running the way it should by having your car inspected and serviced regularly. We at Nordgren Automotive are serious about keeping you and your family safe on the roads. Schedule an appointment or call us at (763) 703-1365.
