Did I tell you that Pequot lakes is famous for Ice Fishing in winters? Well, you should think about that in winter if you can. You can rent out a trailer go to a frozen lake with some beer & do some ice fishing. This place is cool, calm and with lots of entertainment / activity options like ice fishing, skiing, ice hockey and golf if it ain't snowing. If this place is not in you travel list yet, I will say try to plan a tour to Minnesota. Oh, and the towns Bemidji & Duluth is known to people who watch the series FARGO!
