What to Pack for Your Weekend Getaway in Minnesota

What to Pack for Your Weekend Getaway in Minnesota

Minnesota is a state with many incredible natural features, including over 11,000 lakes. During the summer, visitors enjoy swimming and boating. In winter, the lakes form locales for ice-skating and ice fishing. The time of year in which you travel will determine what essentials you need to bring on your Minnesota weekend getaway.

  • 1. Clothing

    Summers in Minnesota tend to hit high temperatures, almost 90°F. Consider packing several shorts and T-shirts made of quick-drying and lightweight fabric, and swimwear. Winters reach extremely low temperatures with heavy snowfall, which calls for heavy clothing such as pants, shirts, sweaters, scarf, gloves, and socks.

  • 2. Camping Gear

    Minnesota is a land of vast wilderness, and camping forms an excellent chance of exploring the wild side of the country. Pack a tent, sleeping bag, cooking supplies, sleeping pads, cots, and mosquito repellent.

  • 3. Camera

    In a land teeming with wildlife and natural beauty, you wouldn’t want to miss capturing some of the exciting moments during your Minnesota holiday on camera. For instance, during a fishing excursion, it would be worth taking a shot while posing with a walleye, or lake trout you’ve caught.
