Best Times to Plan Your Minnesota Family Vacation

Best Times to Plan Your Minnesota Family Vacation

The summer season is the bright spot at the end of Minnesota winter. It’s the time of year where the best meals are served fresh off the grill and desserts always includes chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers. Its when the sunshine lasts long enough to enjoy the sunset after dinner, and the preferred mode of transportation is anything on the water. Best of all, it’s the time that families can get away together to enjoy everything the outdoors have to offer in Minnesota.

There’s no better time to plan your Minnesota summer family getaway than when the cold and snow have you huddled inside by the fireplace. As you plan, keep these specials dates in mind.

Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day Weekend is the un-official start of summer in Minnesota, and it’s the weekend that kicks off all our summer activities here at Madden’s. The resort is bustling with our Parent-Child Golf Tournament and families are enjoying the first of many weekends that will be spent on the lake in the summer. Activities this weekend include Adventure Cove Day Camp for the kids, golf & tennis clinics, pontoon cruises, and much more!

School’s Out 

What better way to celebrate the completion of another school year than with a trip to the lake? Our School’s Out Getaway package lets up to 2 kids stay, eat, and play for FREE, and the kids will love all the activities they get to be a part of at Adventure Cove Day Camp. It’s the perfect way to dive right in to summer!

Father’s Day Weekend

Whether your family loves to golf, fish, or just spend some time together on the lake, Father’s Day Weekend is a great time to escape up north. The weather is sure to be warm enough to enjoy some time on the water and golf course. Plus, you’ll get to enjoy our famous Father’s Day Barbecue–because every vacation is better when there’s great food!

Fourth of July

The only way to celebrate America’s favorite holiday in Minnesota is on the lake, and here at Madden’s, it’s a week of fun your family won’t soon forget. Choose from dozens of activities like golfing, horseback riding, trapshooting, fishing, or boating, and join the fun at Madden’s annual Beach Party, Kid’s Parade, and 4th of July Barbecue. Bring the end of a fun-filled day to a close by taking in the fireworks display over Gull Lake.

Labor Day

Labor Day Weekend is the perfect chance to head up north for a late-season family vacation–especially if you didn’t get a chance to do so through the summer. Madden’s kicks off the weekend with a welcome reception, and then you are invited to enjoy the weekend your way! Explore Madden’s and the Brainerd Lakes area from boat, bike–even horseback.
