Great Escapes


Published:

Planning a trip isn't always easy. You have to find the time, and patience, and perhaps you don't even know where you want to go—or the city well, once you get there.

Well if you're coming to Minnesota, that's where this blog (Day Trips! Girls Getaways! Outdoor Adventures! Urban Adventures!) and other Minnesota Monthly resources come in, like our Travel Club.

great escapesEach month we send a "Great Escapes" email featuring a handful of Minnesota travel deals and ideas, like hotel discounts and activity suggestions, or even ticket offers.

It could include just the nudge you need to finally book those vacation days—plus the initial legwork and offer to really sweeten the deal.

It takes only a few moments to sign up to receive our monthly e-blast (or if you're already receiving other email from us, just update your account) for these regular deals.

Note: We want to see your getaway photos once you get there! So send us a photo of the beautiful scenery, majestic sunsets or any highlight of your trip along with a 30-word caption, and your photo will be featured on MNMO.com, and possibly in the magazine!

And don't forget to view the other Minnesota Journeys. They're all fair game, to look at, covet, and maybe promp your next trip.
