One of the Children’s Theater Company’s all-time most popular performances, it’s guaranteed to delight the kid in you.

Find a New, Cozy Coffeeshop

The Twin Cities boast an abundance of adorable coffeeshops and cafes for residents to seek shelter, treats, and caffeine in. Enjoy a cappuccino while gazing at the beautiful winter season from the safe, warm confines of one of our favorite coffeeshops in the Minneapolis and St. Paul areas.

Explore a New Museum

We’re lucky to live in an area with a number of world-class museums, whether you’re looking for something to do with the little ones or are looking to enhance your own knowledge. Take your young ones to the Minnesota Children’s Museum and help them learn with “Powerful Play” — an entertaining, interactive way for kids to learn. Some museums, including The Minneapolis Institute of Art (MIA), are entirely free. Escape from the cold weather in one of the many great museums in our area.

Go Ice Skating, Skiing or Sledding

There are plenty of places to ice skate, ski, or sled in and around Minneapolis. The Minnesota Parks website is a great resource for finding where to enjoy some snowy fun. For instance, check out their guide for where to Cross Country Ski in our area!
