I’m not fond of winter, though I am resigned to it. Growing up in Iowa, moving to Minnesota, then returning to Iowa, it’s obvious I’ve made my choice to deal with the harshest season.
But that doesn’t mean I have to like it.
My kids love it, though. And, being a mom, I don’t want to hold them back from experiences, regardless of my preferences.
Embracing Winter in Mankato, Minnesota
Just 3 ½ hours northwest of Ankeny, Mankato makes for a fun weekend getaway for the family. The college town is lively in winter, offering amusements from skiing and tubing to laser tag and theater.
