Mr. Koko and I are in Winnipeg, and like to take little weekend trips to anyplace within a day's drive. Neither of us have explored Fargo or Minneapolis, so I thought we'd hit both in one long weekend. I'm looking for one or two highlights for each place.
I've already ruled out looking for the Paul Bunyan statue from "Fargo", having found out it was just a prop made for the movie (boooo). While hilarious, this
is an example of what we don't want to do. Is this
as dumb as it looks? I've glanced through these threads
, and will be checking the links in them more closely, but in the meantime I'd like to get more suggestions from the hive, and/or votes for what's already been suggested in other threads.
What we enjoy: local history, science facts, pioneer villages/museums/forts/native history etc., animals, modern art, shopping at unique stores, good eats.
What we don't: sports, nightclubs, big malls (Mall of America is out), big crowds, being outdoors too long, too many kids.
We'll be going sometime in the summer or fall. Probably spend a day or so at each city. What are the must-sees for each place? Hidden treasures? Places to avoid? (Other than the wood chipper! *snort*)
Thanks in advance!
