Goin' to the Lake

All month long, WCCO was on the road highlighting some of the favorite spots across Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Lake Superior was President's weekend stop, and Chris Shaffer and Amelia Santaniello are about four hours north of the Twin Cities in Lutsen. 

"They really have it figured out at Lutsen. There's so much to do all year round. And as we try to do on these trips, they don't hide from winter-they embrace it. When many Minnesotans think of a great in-state getaway, they're thinking about the North Shore. It's such a beautiful part of the state, and it's easy to get to."

Amelia and Chris took off during the February thaw to find winter Up North, heading up Interstate 35, then onto Highway 61. Take your time on the drive, because there's plenty to see.
