When visiting a new area, there are several ways you can get more insight about what the community has to offer. Here are a couple of my tips for getting to know a new community.
Town festivals are a great way to start your trip! Often a good variety of businesses, local culture and attractions are represented at these festivals. From there you can make decisions about what to do next. If your vacation dates don't align with a community's festival, check out the festival's website, as you will often get a sense of what makes that area special and can plan your travels accordingly.
Rent a Bike
Most cities and even small towns now have bike rental shops and many of these shops even offer tours. You’ll get to see a lot of the community in a short time and your guide can point out great restaurants, attractions, and other interesting things to experience. You can then head back to locations that interest you and spend more time exploring or devouring delicious food!
Enjoy your Minnesota travels!
