This pool is so much fun! We love the little kid area where kids can swim and feel completely comfortable in very little water. There is so much for the little guys to do. Plus there is an area for bigger kids with a cool slide! What a fun place for parties. The swim lessons are so cool for little kids. They do a wonderful job with the preschool crowd at getting them comfortable with swim lessons with no parents involved.
Erik's has a great selection of bikes and biking equipment. The staff are very knowledgeable and can answer most questions that we've ever had about fit and size. They are very helpful and do a great job tuning and adjusting bikes. We take all our bike related business to Erik's. We are very happy with them!
mmmm... i can almost taste all of the good food on a stick right now! We love the state fair. There is so much to look at and so much to eat it takes a good couple days to get through it all! The best part for the kids is the home depot work area where they get aprons and get to build. My favorite part -- the fresh potato chips :) MMmmmmmm :) and the chocolate chip cookies :) and the milk stand :) and the pickles :) the list goes on and on ....
We have just discovered how much fun Camp Snoopy can be! We bought a ticket with a high number of points. Each time we're at the mall we go on one or 2 rides and the kids love it. We love that they allow adults to ride the small rides with the little kids without charging them points! This is going to be fun this winter!! We will probably spend a lot of time here! There are rides for the little kids and rides for the older kids. Although I do have to say that Ax has gotten stuck upside down 1 too many times for me to be riding it anytime soon!
Imagine every store you can think of under one roof. This mall is it! It is the best! We love that there are so many specialty shops, but also your traditional gap, old navy, Jcrew type stores. However, be warned. If you don't want to feel overwhelmed by young teenage creatures stay away on Saturdays! We think during the week is the best time to visit!
This store is so cute. They have got some of the cutest gifts. They have really cute books that could be used as gifts. They have really fun decor that would be fun to put in my house if I could find a spot that didn't look dumb :) They also have a ton of little trinkets that would be great in finishing off a gift for a wedding, shower, or birthday. The Afternoon also has some cute cards you don't find other places. I love just looking in this store and imagining what I would do with unlimited funds !
This skating rink is so adorable, if that's possible! It's in the middle of downtown Minneapolis. The setting is just gorgeous. The rink is in great condition and the building is really well kept. The rates are very reasonable. They offer supports for the little skaters. They have rental skates as well. This is such a fun place to go with a group of people or just as a family.
well... if you go to the casino and lose everything you own at least you can leave knowing they gave you free soda. Mystic Lake is a very clean casino. We have had a lot of fun everytime we've gone there. Our favorite machine is the quarter poker slots. This is a great place to go with friends just to have a little fun. Good luck!
Tournament Liqour is conveniently located right by Von Hanson's. It is perfect to stop off and get a little wine. Tournament has a great selection. They are very friendly and helfpul in choosing just the right drink also. When we went in they allowed us to taste several options. We found it so helpful that is the only store we go to now! LOVE IT!
If you feel like grilling stop at Von Hanson's on the way home! They have a great selection of steaks. They cook up nice and are great quality. They also have a wide variety of flavored chicken breasts that grill up really nice. Be warned though - they are massive!!! If you go in with a hungry stomach you will leave with too much food!
