A List of To Do's

Usually when I think of a To Do list my head starts to spin with the millions of things I need to accomplish in a day! Don't get me wrong I am a huge lover of to do list!  I love crossing a task off my daily list, it just makes me feel accomplished for the day (yes I am a huge nerd/control freak?)

Well the to do list I am about to share with you today is a completely different type of To Do list.   This is a fun list full of fun places to experience in Minneapolis and the surrounding areas!  A list full of new experiences, and places I must see/experience!  

Think of this almost as a bucket list for Minneapolis, although I think new things keep getting added daily!   So lets take a look, shall we?

Many of these are bars, restaurants, theaters, museums and summer events! 

Minnesota Music Cafe
Psycho Suzies-Bar
Minnesota Science museum
Minnesota Children's theatre
Minnesota and Como Zoo-I don't know about you but I am still a little kid at heart and love going to the zoo! 
Love those otters! 
Pier500 is a great restaurant in Hudson Wisconsin, fabulous Happy Hour with a great Patio!  This was our location for lats Friday's Happy hour!  Guess I can Cross this off! 
St croix river
Taylors falls
Treasure Island Casino-Could be interesting, gambling is not my thing!  But I am all about the experiences! 

Cooper-Local Bar
Bike to Minnetonka-Beautiful Trail, Perfect since the weather is getting nice!
Cannon Valley Bike Trail-Great thing about this bike trail, you can bike to one of my favorite wineries!  The Cannon River Winery! 

Ordway: Beautiful Theatre in St Paul (Capital of Minnesota, and Minneapolis's Twin City!) 
I saw my first ballet at the Ordway, that is where I fell in love with Ballet at the age of 3! 
See plays at both the State Theater
and the Orphium! 
Both beautiful theaters right down the street from my apartment!  I used to perform Nutcracker at the State Theater when I danced in Minneapolis!  One of the best experiences of my life!  And seeing Mamma Mia and the Orphium was a treat! 
Grand ol day
Aquatennial fireworks
Williams Peanut Bar-Fun bar in a part of the city called Uptown!
Stella's Fish Cafe-Great rooftop, and a great place to meet friends! 
I went to an impromptu happy hour here!  What better way to take in the view of Minneapolis?
Nyes Bar 
Gashaufs Octoberfest-No need for an explanation
Golfing- I have been told it is a great sport, I guess I am missing out!  Better learn how to play! 
Run a 5k in Minneapolis
Twins Game-Been there! 
Gopher Game: Gotta see the new Stadium!
Wild Hockey-best sport ever!

Looks like I have my work cut out for me this summer! 
What do you think?

Do you have a list of things to do/experience in the city you live in?


  1. Fun! Better get started on crossing off that list!

  2. so much to do and so little time! summer is the best :) there are so many festivals in chicago I want to make it to this summer, I normally only make it to 2 or 3 but there are atleast 3 different ones a weekend so I really need to make it to more!

  3. Oh my goodness! So many fun and exciting things to do! I want to come and do them all with you! How fun would that be?!

  4. This is def a fun to do list! I need to do one this summer too! Looking forward to you letting us know as you do them!

  5. although ive lived in new york for quite some time, I want to do the same thing because so many places pop up that you want to visit...i always forget some of them

  6. Making lists like this are one of my favorite ways to organize all the fun things I want to do in a given city. The winery you listed of course caught my eye!
