Ten Hip Family Vacations
|Follow the leader in a dog-sled exploration of Minnesota's winter wonderlands (Corbis)|
For a slice of the surreal sans the theme-park stimulants, spend a long weekend at snowy Gunflint Lodge in Minnesota's north woods. It beats a stay at Grandma's country houseunless your granny kennels 30 loyal huskies.
Swaddled in comforters and sleeping bags, toddlers ages two and up can sit in the sled while a musher guides the dog team through the wintry woods. Plus there's snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and watching the deer gather at dusk. At night back at your cabin, you can tell bedtime stories in front of the fire.
The Wild Winter Package includes four nights in a cabin along with meals, snowshoe and ski rentals, a dog sled ride, and more. Contact Gunflint Lodge for the most-recent rates.
