Today we visited Explore Minnesota’s website to find inspiration for fun activities this winter. We know Spring Break is coming up for many of our families at our communities and we thought we may suggest a few activities for a fun Spring Break!
Below is a portion of an article entitled Make a Family Getaway This Winter featuring The National Eagle Center and Lark Toys in Wabasha, MN.
On a lark, take your kids to the amazing LARK Toys and Carousel, where you’ll find toys, ice cream, candy, and an exquisite hand-carved carousel all under one roof. Located in the tiny town of Kellogg in the southeast corner of the state, it is the nation’s largest independent toy store. The name, which stands for Lost Arts Revival by Kreofsky, reflects its owners’ passion for good old-fashioned wooden toys, but there’s also a huge selection of books, puppets, tin wind-up toys, and much more.
While you’re in the Mississippi River Valley, don’t miss the National Eagle Center, just up scenic Highway 61 from Kellogg. Starting in late November, many bald eagles migrate to the open water and plentiful fish supply in the Wabasha-Reads Landing area, and they’re easy to spot through the scopes on the observation deck. You can also see three live eagles-Harriet, Angel, and Columbia-up close inside the center, along with interesting displays about our national emblem.
