Two of the most “magical” winter towns in the country are in Minnesota, according to a recent ranking.
A list published earlier this month by Trips Discover highlighted 50 towns across the country with the best winter festivities and atmosphere. Among the towns listed were Stillwater and Winona.
In Stillwater, the list highlighted the town’s “picturesque” historic buildings and homes, as well as its 42-inch annual snowfall and nearby ski resorts.
As for Winona, the list called the city a “snowy wonderland” in the winter. It highlighted its Christmas markets, winter views and festivals. Last year, the city celebrated the return of its annual Winona Holiday Market, according to Winona Daily News.
Across the border, two Wisconsin cities were also named: Elkhart Lake and Bayfield.
