For that Up North charm close to home, visit downtown White Bear Lake

From: Pioneer Press – https://www.twincities.com/2018/12/09/for-that-up-north-charm-close-to-home-visit-downtown-white-bear-lake/

When it’s time for some fun, Matoska Park, east of downtown off Sixth Street, offers great views of White Bear Lake, sailboats on the water as well as the bridge connecting the private Manitou Island to the mainland. White Bear Lake is also know for its arts scene. Catch a performance at Lakeshore Players Theatre in the new Hanifl Performing Arts Center or head to the White Bear Center of the Arts building next door where you can shop art, browse gallery space and even take in a class. Or, bring out your inner artist at Create Space and make home decor items while you’re at it. Create Space, which just relocated downtown from a few blocks away, offers classes in Do-it-Yourself home decor projects. Materials such as wood, paints and power tools are provided.
