Let's Talk About… Exploring Minnesota Vacation

Sometimes you just really need a vacation and I definitely was at that point, so I have taken the next week off from my full-time job. And part of the vacation is to catch up on things that have been pushed aside like getting my hair cut, which has been over do for a year. And the other part is to just go explore Minnesota. I've lived here all of my life, but I have hardly seen any of this state other than the Twin Cities and Duluth. So I'm planning on getting out of my little backyard of the Twin Cities and going to many of the cities around the state. And I am planning on also going up to Duluth area for a day or two, as well just revisiting some of my favorite places I haven't been to for a while in the Twin Cities.

And for part of this vacation, I am challenging myself to vlog every day and post them starting tomorrow (March 30th). Now they might not just be me talking to a camera about the day, but rather me just filming random things from where I go than putting it to music. I fell in love with that style when I was editing my At Home With Monsters vlog. So these might be a combination of both. And all of them will be posted to my YouTube channel.

So the places at this time that I'm for sure planning on visiting are the following:

  • Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis, MN
  • Como Zoo in St Paul, MN
  • New Ulm, MN
  • Stillwater, MN
  • Gleensheen Estate in Duluth, MN
  • Northshore in Duluth, MN
  • Split Rock Lighthouse in Two Harbors, MN
  • Interstate State Park in Taylor Falls, MN

Now there might be more that I get to or I might completely decide to go somewhere else, but either way, it's going to be the adventure I've been itching for. And part of this came about because I have been just in the mood to just go on an unplanned road trip, but can't afford to stay elsewhere or travel very far. So all of these are within a distance that I can get there, see things, and go back home all within the same day.

If you've ever been to Minnesota or are from here, where should I visit or see?
