One of my favorite cities to visit. Growing up in North Dakota, Minneapolis/St.Paul or “The Cities” was the closest major metropolitan area in the region. It was always very exciting to go there to see the Mall of America or to visit Valley Fair. It was a big deal for us kids from ND. Although I have traveled many other places it still has a special place in my heart. I love going downtown St. Paul to stop at Cossetta for lunch (that’s another blog post on it’s own). Making a stop at the Asian markets on Nicollett in Minneapolis or on University in St. Paul for some great Pho or Banh Mi. To this day if I need a mini vacation I am always up for a trip to “The Cities!” Above are some pictures I took on one of our trips.
