With great live music nearly every night, the Dakota Jazz Club provides a wonderful way to spend an evening. I recently took my husband to hear a group that promised something a bit different on his birthday. Baladino, a five-piece band with...
Stone Arch Bridge, Minneapolis, MN, USA
This is one of my favorite places in the city. Either side of the bridge gives you a fantastic view. Anyone who wants to consider themselves part of the Twin Cities needs to go here at least once. Speaking from experience though, you'll want to go...
