Don’t Settle for Basic Accommodations

When booking your accommodations in Minnesota, there’s no reason to settle for the typical hotel option. Instead, you can look into more authentic options like northern MN cabin rentals. This will place you right in the heart of nature, allowing you to enjoy the beauty that is spring. What better way to see the beginnings of blooms and foliage than being in the heart of nature? 

A cabin rental is ideal for those who want that home-away-from-home feeling, as they offer a full kitchen, a seating area, and a separate bedroom. If you plan on being away for more than a few days, the extra space will be much appreciated.

Beat the Summer Rush

One of the best things about a spring holiday in Minnesota is that you will be at the peak travel period. Summer (June to August) tends to be the busiest tourist season in Minnesota, so this is when accommodations can be more expensive and harder to come by. Tourist attractions and sites will be also more crowded. So, as you pick your travel dates, you’ll want to ensure you visit before June begins.

Plan a Visit to Minneapolis

If you’re the type that likes the city atmosphere and all the attractions that tend to go along with it, then you’ll want to be sure you spend a few days in Minneapolis. Some of the notable attractions in the city include:

  • Walker Art Center
  • Mill City Museum
  • Minnesota Children’s Museum
  • Minnehaha Falls
  • Mall of America

While you can certainly do your own thing and build your itinerary, there are also several private, custom, and themed tours you can sign up for. This can be fun if you want to maximize your visit and take in multiple sites and attractions in a single day.

Check the Festival and Event Schedule

Minnesota is home to all kinds of fabulous festivals and events all year round and spring is no exception. It’s a good idea to take a look at what’s happening during the travel dates you have booked. This will allow you to arrange your itinerary accordingly and purchase tickets in advance if necessary.

There are fairs and festivals, live music events, arts and theater productions, heritage and history events, wildlife and birding events, food and drink events, as well as sporting and special interest events, just to name a few.

Using all these tips will allow you to plan the perfect trip to Minnesota, whether it is your first time visiting or you’ve traveled to the state many times in the past.
