Top 10 Fireworks Displays in the Twin Cities and More 4th of July Fun

Over the Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis

Celebrating Independence Day with Minneapolis’s Red, White and Boom over the Stone Arch Bridge.

Fireworks on the 4th of July are a tradition for our country.  You can stay at home and watch them on your TV (which we have done when our kids were super tiny) or you can find live fireworks near you.  Most of them start just after dusk–approximately 10:00 p.m.  More than likely, you will want to arrive before then to find a good spot to sit.

Here are our top 10 Fireworks Displays to enjoy this Saturday, plus some other fun to enjoy. Read More

Family Fun: Discovery Hollow at Tamarack Nature Center

I’m loving the back-to-nature trend I’ve seen pop up at outdoor play spaces in the Twin Cities. As much as I appreciate neighborhood parks we can bike to, it’s refreshing to take a break from the standard play equipment and unleash the kids on a place like Discovery Hollow at Tamarack Nature Center in White Bear Lake. This natural playground has been designed with all the elements kids crave: fallen logs and stumps to balance on, sticks to build forts, beautifully-engineered and arranged boulders to clamber over and a sufficient amount of sand and water to keep them entertained for hours.
