Fly into the twin cities of Minneapolis-St. Paul. That’s a good starting point for a weekend getaway in Minnesota. Pick up a rental car at the airport so you can get your explorations underway. Winter travelers could drive to Duluth on Lake Superior to embrace the frozen landscape. The North Shore Trail that parallels the lake runs for more than 150 scenic miles. Or you could head to Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area and go snowmobiling on groomed trails or pedal along fat tire bike trails. Alternatively, you could check out the ice fishing around Lake Mille Lacs.
