If you’ve clicked on this tab, it must mean you are thinking of moving to Minnesota or the Western Wisconsin area and with that, I couldn’t be more excited for you!  Our area has SO much to offer all year long!  I am hoping that some of the information you’ll see posted here, (and I am adding new things all the time, so be sure to stop back often!) can help you get more acquainted with Minnesota & Western Wisconsin.  

I am a huge lover of the outdoors and have added info here about our area’s amazing State Parks, which I hope you’ll visit when you get a chance!  Another favorite of mine, is FOOD!  And oh boy, our area does not disappoint in that arena! Scroll down to see some of my favorite places to get the latest in foodie goodness!

Minnesota State Parks~

Minnesota is home to more than parks & recreation areas, and has active visitors all year long!  There are SO many great parks, you have to get out to see for yourself!  Click HERE to head to their website!


ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA~

Downtown St. Paul, has a unique feel to itself; it offers the small town quaintness you’ll find in rural areas of Minnesota, along with the hustle & bustle of downtown city life.  Getting around is easy year round, with the enclosed skyway system keeping you warm & safe from our winter winds.

A big thanks to Visit Saint Paul for allowing me to share these great maps with you!  They have a super extensive website of information you should check out if you are considering a move to St. Paul!


MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA~

Downtown Minneapolis, the larger of the two sister cities, has it’s own enclosed skyway system for access to shopping, restaurants and many businesses.  The past couple of years we’ve seen the light rail help connect the city and there are always taxi-cabs at the ready to get you where you need to go.  Be sure to visit Meet Minneapolis for SO much more info that great city!
