We love going on city adventures. Instead of getting in the car to drive for one single stop, we always search for kid-friendly fun in the area so we can make the most of our trip. Here are some of our favorites.

Brainerd MN
Get that Up North feeling just a couple hours north of the Cities. Waterpark hotels, turtle races,  and the spirit of Paul Bunyan

Byron-Oronoco-Zumbrota (Southern MN)
Zoos, orchards, and parks, oh my!

Duluth MN Getaway
Oh Duluth, such a special place for so many Minnesotans. People that know Duluth seem to have their favorite places, Learn about our favorite warm-weather spots.

Maple Grove MN
Maple Grove has a lot to offer for a suburb, like the indoor waterpark, rainbow park, music park, and killer cupcakes!

New Ulm MN
New Ulm has a wonderful German small town feel but is big enough that it has enough attractions to make a day trip out of a visit to just the beautiful city of New Ulm.

Rosemount MN
Downtown Rosemount is a wonderful place to take the family for a fun and easy day trip outing. You’ll find a park, splash pad, restaurants, and shops all within walking distance of each other.

Stillwater- Taylors Falls MN-WI
Outdoor beauty, charming street, and of course the Teddy Bear Park

Owatonna MN
Roughly one hour south of the Twin Cities and full of fun. Check out the Nature Center, Zoo, candy store and more

Osceola, WI
Train rides, waterfalls, and good eats

Woodbury MN
Woodbury is a wonderful place to hang out. Read about our trip to Madison’s Place, the East Metro’s first fully accessible playground, Kiln Kreations, Wooddale Family Fun Zone and more!
