Please help me with my Minnesota itinerary

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning our first visit to Minnesota around a (happy) family event in August in Rochester.

Arriving mid-day Friday at MSP, we'll spend the weekend in Minneapolis, then rent a car on Monday morning to drive to Grand Marais and stay several days there, exploring towns along the North Shore, enjoying easy hikes and walleye dinners.

Then to Rochester for family stuff, leaving Monday morning. Our plane out of MSP is Thursday. From Monday morning until Wednesday night my only 'musts' are a visit to Anoka (where my father was born) and some time at the Swedish museum in Minneapolis (because I think it will be easier for us when we have a car).

Any suggestions for that unplanned time? Any place of interest to the south or west of Minneapolis? No, not he Mall of America! I know we could plan to go north to the lakes. But where? And we could probably plan Anoka and the museum on Wednesday before going to our airport hotel... What do you think?

Thanks so much for your ideas!
