Took my 17-year-old niece here while she was visiting, just so we could make a few memories. Thanks to the personable flight crew (staff), she had an absolute blast. They are very encouraging and clearly focused on the experience of the customer. Love that this is available here, and very appreciative they are such professionals!

What a great place to enjoy some tastings. Staff is wonderful. It was a beautiful day so we were able to enjoy a glass of wine out on the patio. Absolutely loved the Cranberry wine. They have a wonderful variety.

Great shop with an eclectic selection of crafts, gifts and antiques. Really fun garden pieces. Only open on the weekends in the fall so check their schedule before making the trip.

Summer is not complete without a paddle down the Upper St Croix. We decided to try paddleboarding and it was nothing short of a BLAST! The Riverwood staff exhibited great energy, and there location is perfect! Whether you are canoeing, kayaking, or paddleboarding the St Croix, go with this company, they are first class!

Franconia Sculpture Park

Reviewed By radsvijay - Hyderabad, India

It has the element of surprise. The sculpture does not cease to amaze you. The setting is rustic. We missed interaction with the sculptors, but there are, I am told sessions where one can meet the sculptors. The park is open from dawn to dusk and is free.

Interstate State Park

This unique park is located in both Minnesota and Wisconsin and offers camping, hiking, swimming, kayaking, canoeing and rock climbing.

Reviewed By Mindy A - Eagan, Minnesota

This was a great afternoon trip with teenagers. Very interesting and lots of climbing, up very well marked paths and steps. Hand rails for safety and help up and down the stone steps. Pot holes were fascinating.

Interstate State Park- Wisconsin

Reviewed By manmountain13 - Bloomington, Minnesota

The rocky gorge is very scenic and I enjoy the area but it is worth noting that the cliffs don't go very far. If you take the boat ride you will notice how the cliffs disappear quickly and give way to flat forest and grass, then there is another small dalles just south of there and not much else. It reminds me of Wisconsin Dells. It's a nice area but you shouldn't expect it to rival some of the more scenic places in Minnesota like the North Shore or Lake Pepin. It's also very dangerous.

Dead End Hayride

Reviewed By Angela H - Maplewood, Minnesota

This place was awesome. First and foremost, their customer service was amazing! We went to Trail of Terror first and the woods were closed today, yet they wouldn't refund my money. We left $86 in tickets we can't use and drove all the way to Dead End Hayride. I will never go to Trail of Terror again because I am so mad they are forcing me to keep tickets I can't use. It was so much better than Trail of Terror and worth every dollar. The lines were super long the night we went and I am handicapped so I can't stand very long, they upgraded us to VIP when explained I can't stand that long and asked for a refund. I am so grateful they didn't do us wrong like Trail of Terror did. On top of that, Dead End Hayride is so much better than Trail of Terror! I can't believe how much money they put into their Haunted Trail/Mazes. I will come back here again.... Every single year! :-)

Karl Oskar and Kristina monument

Reviewed By TheBarnGoddess - Saint Paul, Minnesota

It's a metal statue in a very small area outside the local paper. It's interesting if you are interested in the fictional story of Karl Oskar. It is usually something the kids point out every time we drive by it. So go see it if you like that sort of thing but don't act surprised when you think, "Oh well. That wasn't really that interesting."
