I know there is some nervousness as the trade deadline looms and as a further diversion during this two day break in the schedule, I'd like some input on places to visit in Minnesota. Occasionally, one of the posters from elsewhere in the world will joke about visiting us here in Minnesota or at least taking in a game. I know most foreign visitors probably don't even consider coming here when they come to the US, but if someone was coming what would you recommend they see? (I also love visiting things that are new to me.)
Lanesboro and Ely are my two favorite small towns. I love the boundary waters because the wilderness as an experience is becoming more and more remote. What would you pick? What are the gems or little known highlights of the TC metro area?
