Gather with the state of Minnesota at the end of August through Labor Day and enjoy the Great Minnesota Get Together!
Decorah is a charming small town with options for everyone in the family. Whether you are a shopper, historian, or nature lover, you'll find some fun.
The small town of Blue Earth has so much to show off, and has so much more to offer than just the Giant! Great trails, and many family-friendly activities, all less than 2 hours away from Rochester.
It’s a challenge to concisely write all that awaits you at Minnesota's Largest Candy Store in one post. While we were there for 2 hours, we still missed so much!  Another trip is being planned for "research purposes."
Welcome to my hometown! Stillwater is the birthplace of Minnesota and a gorgeous historic town right on the St. Croix River.
Southeastern Minnesota is FULL of beautiful state parks and hiking trails. When my family wants to hit a local state park, we love taking a trip to Carley State Park near Plainview, MN.
This trip is so easy to do as it's a short 45-minute drive from Rochester.  All of the stops are kid and adult-friendly.  Parts are indoors, parts are outdoors.  You can make it as long or short as you want to!  Here's what Adventure Day includes:
The National Eagle Center is definitely worth a trip- at least once. The Eagles are mesmerizing and their passion is contagious.
We got invited to a wedding in Duluth and I immediately thought, “Let’s make a weekend of it!”
SeaQuest is a highly interactive experience full of opportunities to get up close with some fun animals. Touching and learning is encouraged!
