I love new holiday experiences, and have been so impressed with all the ones I’ve discovered in Minnesota in the past few years.
One of the newest experiences is the Northern Express, an immersive holiday experience in Excelsior that was created by local moms and business owners here in Minnesota. It has live animals including reindeer and llamas, a Christmas tree forest, treats, plus Santa Claus and everything you can imagine in the North Pole!
This is its second year, and it has new features. PLUS – I have an exclusive DISCOUNT to share with you!
With my exclusive discount code, you can save 10%, or $2 off an adult ticket! Just use my code FrugalMom22 when booking online!
The Northern Express is in Excelsior, at Camp Fire Minnesota, an organization that offers camping experiences for young Minnesotans.
