Best Place to Take Out-of-Town Guests
When your sister and her family fly in from Cleveland, it's not an easy call. You need a one-stop destination that spans all ages and interests. You need a place that speaks to both active and sedentary. What you need is Stillwater. Minnesota's oldest city has been named one of the 10 Prettiest Towns in America by Forbes. Along the pristine St. Croix River, the energetic can canoe, kayak, bike, or hike. For the more leisurely, there are wineries and breweries, boutiques and antiques, plus bars and restaurants galore. For the more intellectually inclined, there's some of the finest old architecture Minnesota has to offer, plus historical trolley tours that take you back to the state's days on the frontier. And for the little ones, there's even Teddy Bear Park, featuring a tree house, slides, magicians, and, yes, giant teddy bears.
