Things To Do In Minneapolis

There are so many things to do in Minneapolis these days, I will start with some of my favorites and Janet Kennedy Thomas has given lots of ideas too.
Lake Minnetonka and Excelsior have many things to offer, from great shopping on main street to Excel Boat Club  Pontoon Boat Rentals  on the Lake. 

For those that love to fish, Minnetonka offers some great fishing and Pike Dreams will find them for you.

Maybe just a Boat Ride on the streetcar boat MINNEHAHA , Call (952) 474-2115 for departure times.

or how about a Sunday Brunch Cruise with Bay View Events at 12 - 2 pm, call (952) 470-2224 for your reservation.

Bring back some memories like mine of hitching a ride on the back of a street car in the winter on Nicollet Ave with a ride on this streetcar in Excelsior right by Bay View Event Center.

Maybe you would like to buy an Antique Oriental Rug



Just Come to YOUR reunion and 
    take that stroll down memory lane!

Remember, we have all reached the 'golden age' of Senior Discounts and AARP Membership. (They have the largest 'purchasing power' of any group - in many aspects ....... So, don't forget to mention you'd like your “Senior Discount" when making flight, car, or hotel reservations. You may have other discounts through the military, school employee groups, union groups, fraternal organizations, etc. Discounts are also available at many 'attractions' you may wish to visit. The above list of places to visit, and things to do, may help you in planning for a memorable weekend in Minneapolis. Go to the Mall. Go to the Zoo. Go to the Lakes. Go to a Museum.

See you at YOUR reunion... !
