Well, I have yet another city to add to my ever-growing list of places to visit in the US. Somehow I add more to it than I ever get to check off as being visited! Actually this year we do have a couple trips planned to new areas, so I am super excited about that! One in just a few weeks, and another for the summer; needless to say we have been doing a lot of research and planning! A new city I just added, though, is St. Paul, MN. I have looked into all the super-neat things to do there, as well as the Hotels St Paul MN, and I would absolutely love to visit!
First of all, St. Paul is home to a very unique amusement park. Ever wanted to drive a bulldozer, or dig up some dirt with an excavator? Now you have the opportunity to learn how, and actually operate heavy equipment, all in a safe and controlled environment! This is something that the kids would really enjoy!
While in St. Paul, I would also like to visit the Mall of America. This is just a few minutes drive from St. Paul, and while I'm not a huge mall-shopper, I would enjoy getting to visit and shop at the country's largest mall! With over 500 stores, 50 restaurants, and numerous other attractions, this would easily be an all-day trip.
Then, I would also enjoy visiting some of the many parks and outdoor recreation areas in St. Paul. I love hiking, camping, biking, and just about any outdoor sport, and St. Paul looks to have a number of parks where you can get all the fresh air you want.
I would try to time my visit to St. Paul to coincide with the Festival of Nations. This seems to be a very entertaining and educational event, showcasing over 90 various ethnic groups that reside in Minnesota. It would be a wonderful opportunity to teach the children about different cultures, and be able to experience it a little bit. Different foods, music and arts are just a few of what they would see at the Festival of Nations.
If you live in, or have ever been to, St. Paul, MN please leave a comment and tell me if there's anything else that would be fun to do if I ever get the chance to visit!
