Be a Tourist in Your Own Town

A good friend of mine visited the Twin Cities this past summer. It was fun to spend the day with her and visit my own town as if I was a tourist. There is so much to see and do. We merely touched on a few things in one day.

For another perspective, it’s always good to take a look at your own city/town with new eyes. Sort of like taking a vacation without leaving home.

In addition to MidTown Global Market, a lunch of falafel, schwarma, turkish tea and red velvet cake at Shish on Grand Ave. and a walk at Lake Nokomis, here are a few of the things we saw.

Of course there is so much more. But we decided to stay outside in the perfect weather. Then we simply ran out of time.
