Start Your Holiday Planning

As we say goodbye to summer it is time to start planning for all of the fall happenings, however, we highly recommend thinking further into the future, the holiday season! Yes, that’s right we are already talking about planning for a winter getaway over the holidays to get out and enjoy a weekend away, visit family or make a getaway out of your holiday shopping. Hotel rooms and party rooms book up quickly so now is the time to start planning.


Holiday Stays – Why Burnsville

Burnsville is the ideal location for your holiday getaway as we are close enough to all the major venues, shopping destinations, and events while still being far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of a smaller city. Public transportation and ride share services are popular options if you want to skip the headache of driving and parking all together. 

Staying in Burnsville also allows the convenience of free parking, lower hotel rates and free breakfast with many of the hotels.

Step one for planning for the holidays is to book your stay, now you can start planning all the things to see and do while you are here. We’d like to take this opportunity to highlight the Ames Center which is the ideal venue for the whole family. Let us break down some of the upcoming shows that are ideal for the whole family or for a romantic date night during your winter getaway. Book your stay today!
