Enjoy the Thanksgiving Weekend

We hope you have a wonderful, long weekend with family and friends. Remember to Opt Outside on Friday! There are plenty of places offering free outdoor activities on Friday including Lutsen Mountain in our neck of the woods.

Free Park Friday

November 24, 2017

The tradition continues! Admission to all 75 Minnesota state parks and recreation areas (regularly $7 for one-day vehicle permit) will be free on the day after Thanksgiving again this year.

The goal is to encourage families to extend their holiday by spending time together with a walk outdoors. Research shows that walking offers multiple benefits, from increased creativity and better brain function to more flexibility and stamina. So you won’t just burn calories, you’ll also improve your well-being.

While you’re out there, snap a photo of your Black Friday free park adventure, and share it with us on social media using #FreeParkFriday and #OnlyinMN.
