Instagramable Summer Fun

Summer is upon us and anyone who lives in Minnesota knows that we must take full advantage of it while we can!

Here is our list of the top 5 Must DO's in the Twin Cities for some good ole summer fun that's totally Instagramable!

The Minnesota State Fair

This one probably goes without saying!  The MN State Fair is one of the best get-togethers for Minnesotans at the end of the season. Dunk a Sweet Marthas Cookie (or 12) into a ice cold milk from the All You Can Drink Mil Booth, grab a mat and take a ride down the iconic Giant Slide, board a boat and float through Ye Old Mill with the fam, or see new heights and a view of the entire fairground on top of the iconic Space Tower. Whatever you decide to do, I'm 100% positive, you'll love it. 


The Aquatennial Torchlight Parade

If you haven't experienced the Minneapolis Aquatennial Torchlight Parade. this is the year. It's one of the largest parades held annually in the Twin Cities. Grab the kiddos and join the community indulging in ice cream and local food vendors as you watch the city of Minneapolis light up!
