Christmas is around the corner and plenty of people are already getting in the holiday spirit. Colorful lights are going up, Christmas tree tents have been popping up, and malls are filled with shoppers hunting for the perfect holiday gifts. Once December starts, there will be plenty of holiday events in Minneapolis and St. Paul to keep you and your family entertained and busy.
There is no other picturesque winter wonderland in the country than the one experienced in the Twin Cities. While the urge to stay cuddled up at home will be strong, our movers in Minneapolis argue there is no better time to go out and explore Minneapolis and St. Paul than during the holiday season.
