The Elements of Escape

Minnesotans don’t let a little snow and subzero temps trap us in our homes. Not only are we a hardy bunch; we creatively embrace whatever Mother Nature throws our way. Should you need a few ideas for how to tick off the days until spring once again thaws the North, we’ve curated a list of some hidden (and not-so-hidden) escapes, excursions, and diversions bucketed by Earth, Water, Air, and Fire—seen by early humans as the four elements that created the universe, and for our purposes, beacons to help navigate a winter filled with fun, style, and substance.
