Tis the season for holiday cheer! Bundle up and head out into the cities to see dazzling light displays and participate in seasonal festivals and activities.
Each holiday season, the plaza of Downtown St. Paul’s Rice Park becomes a twinkly wonderland, with hundreds of thousands of white lights adorning the trees. Stroll through the park with your sweetie, then head over to Wells Fargo WinterSkate to take a twirl on the rink.
An experience well beyond just holiday light displays, the annual Holidazzle celebration pulls out all the stops with food, music, local vendors, and even fireworks in Loring Park. Check the event schedule and bring the family for outdoor fun in December.
Drive down historic Summit Avenue in St. Paul to take in the sights. Not only are some of the cities oldest, most impressive homes on this iconic strip, but so is the Governor’s residence. Many of the homes take great pride in their holiday decor, so take a cruise and enjoy. Guided and self-guided tours of the Governor’s residence are available.
