Museum
“Prepare to get lost for the day in this well designed place for kids. Park in the nearby public parking and use one of Minnesota's many skyways to walk to the museum. You can stop at nearby Mickey's diner for a bite to eat, and fill a pocket at Candyland, just around the corner. ”

Grocery or Supermarket
“The Lunds Grocery store is a two block walk from the "parking lot" side of the home. Great Salad Bar, Deli Counter, and Big Bowl Take Out (check out the family meal deal). Look for BOGO's (buy one get one specials) daily. Secret Tip: f you shop after 8 pm the bakery loaves are 2 for 1 also. Slice the seeded loaf up thin (bread knife in the drawer below the toaster) and serve with butter and jam for an easy breakfast the newt day. ”
