The Great Minnesota Bucket List: Luxurious Locales
Toast these relaxing getaways with a bottle of wine—no knapsacks, kid packs, or achy backs in sight.
Step Out for a Night
Something about visiting the town with the world’s biggest shoe makes for a romantic getaway. It could be an elegant dinner over candlelight at The Port
, located in the signature St. James Hotel
, or perhaps it’s spending an afternoon antiquing, followed by a hike to the top of the nearby bluffs to watch eagles soar high above town.
Whether it’s the sights, the shopping, the eating, or merely an uninterrupted night of sleep, Red Wing offers an easy escape to Minnesota’s own version of Pleasantville. 406 Main St. Red Wing, 800-252-1875
» WHERE TO STAY
Plan for luxury accommodations and a decadent breakfast at Golden Lantern B&B
. Think baked grapefruit smothered with brown sugar. 721 East Ave., Red Wing, 651-388-3315
Stop by Red Wing Shoes
(the lower sale level is a must) and nab a shot of the 16-foot-tall, size 638 1/2-D boot—after all, it is the town’s namesake.
