Minnesota is one of the top states for outdoor activities. Murphy-Hanrehan Park Reserve is a serene wilderness area with biking and cross-country skiing trails, while Scott Park features a unique archery range as well as tennis courts. Bloomington Dog Park and Jean and Carl Frank Canine Park are beautiful pet-friendly sites where your beloved pooch can romp freely.


In 2015, Minneapolis supplanted Washington, D.C. as America's Most Literate City in USA Today's annual rankings, with St. Paul close behind at #4. Savage Library, Galaxie Library and Rochester Public Library are rich resources for hard-cover and ebooks as well as free classes, workshops, and activities like film screenings and book clubs.

Movie Theaters

Whether you're on an outing with the kids or a romantic date night, a trip to the movies is a great choice for both. Regal Eagan Stadium 16 and Paragon Chateau 14 show the latest Hollywood offerings and family-friendly films.
