Holiday Spots

There’s nothing better than getting into the holiday spirit with a fun, family activity. Emily Engberg has a hand full of fun spots to check out to celebrate this winter.

1.    Elf the Musical at The Ordway
The musical runs Wednesday, December 5th to Sunday, December 30th
                
2.    Wells Fargo WinterSkate
Skate outdoors this winter with a beautiful backdrop of Saint Paul. It’s free and open to the public. You can also rent skates.

3.    Maple Grove Central Park Ice Skate Loop
This will definitely get you in the holiday spirit. At night, the loop is surrounding by trees that are perfectly lit. You can also go inside and warm up by the fire while you grab a snack.

4.    Gingerbread Wonderland at the Norway House
See 120 gingerbread houses on display. It’s perfect for the entire family. Some 11,000 people checked it out last year alone.

5.    Lake Elmo Inn
This restaurant has a long history in Lake Elmo. The holidays are the perfect time to stop by. The entire ceiling in the bar area is decorated with ornaments donated by customers. It’s a sight to see. Some twenty two thousand ornaments have been donated for the past three decades.
