10 Fun things to do in July in Twin Cities and surrounding areas
There is nothing better than July in Minnesota!
There are so many things to do, these are just a few of my favorites.
1. Minnesota and Lakes, the two are inseparable, especially in summer. Going for a walk or a bike ride around the lakes is so fun in the summer. Whether you walk around Calhoun(oops, Bde Maka Ska) taking in the sailing lessons, or renting a stand up paddleboard or kayak and getting on the lake. Take a walk around Lake Harriet, and stroll in the rose garden. Stop at Urban Eatery for a bite to eat near Calhoun or it's worth a short walk to Cafe Ena from Lake Harriet!
Here's a link to view the Lake Harriet bandshell schedule:
2. I'm always surprised by how many Minnesotans have not visited these iconic Minneapolis sights.
The Cherry and the Spoon, and everything else at the Sculpture gardens, this is such a great activity and they also have mini-golf! When you are finished, take a walk across the pedestrian bridge and go check out St.Mary's Basilica, so beautiful! If you love music and are not afraid of the crowds The Basilica Block Party is July 12-13 this year and offers up some great music and fun! https://www.basilicablockparty.org/
3. Ok, so you hate baseball and think it is boring! Never mind that- the St.Paul Saints game is such fun and the baseball is really secondary. They keep you entertained from the moment you walk through the gates and CHS field is a great venue, with a lot of good food options. If you want to go out before or after the game, no problem, there are a lot of options, nearby Oxcart has a great rooftop bar, and Birch's Lowertown Taproom has an amazing burger and great beer! http://saintsbaseball.com/
4. Last month St. Paul Lowertown had it's Jazz festival, this month it is the Blues and Funk
fest, July 19-20th in Mears Park, come down and enjoy the music(including Boogie Wonderland!). There will be food trucks, or there are a lot of restaurant options around the park.
5. Enjoy a fun night out, where you can get up close to the live horse races and do a little betting at Running Aces! Reserve a table with all of your friends for a fun evening.
6. July 20th Anoka is hosting the Food Truck Festival, with tons of food options, live music and of course beer, 10K being the local favorite! https://10kbrew.com/event/anoka-food-truck-festival-2/
7. Now here is another iconic Minnesota sight that not everyone has visited, but must! Minnehaha Falls, with the beautiful falls, walking trails, fun bike rentals, kiddy splash pool, frisbie golf, picnic and grilling spots and of course, Sea Salt restaurant, live mustic, there is so much to offer!
On July 20th they are hosting the Minnehaha Falls Art Fair. https://www.minnehahafallsartfair.com/
8. Summer is a great time to visit the Arboretum, with miles of walking trails and a plethora of beautiful gardens and flowers, it is impossible to leave here anything but happy! Make a day of it and stop in Excelsior for the cute shops and lunch on lake Minnetonka. (If you have the kids with, head down to Excelsior dock and drop in a few bread crumbs to see the fish jump right out of the water!)
9. While I personally believe there is no bad time to visit Duluth, it is hard to argue that July is the BEST time to visit. When in Duluth, LakeWalk is a must--beautiful views of the lake, walking through the amazing rose garden with stops along the way at Canal Park Brewing, Boat Club patio overlooking the lake for a martini, stop in for a pint at Sir Benedicts Tavern, and then there is the ice cream stop at PortLand Malt Shoppe. If you have not visited Glensheen Mansion, I recommend this, as everyone remembers the notoriety of this classic Minnesota house, and the grounds are worth the trip as well. Then there is Enger tower with its hikes and beautiful gardens. At night, my favorite restaurant is VaBene, with its beautiful glass patio hanging out over Lake Superior, and afterwards, stop by the Rathskeller, speakeasy for a classic cocktail in this amazing historic setting. There is so much more--Bent Paddle if you like breweries, for one... but I must stop, you can visit yourself and let me know your favorites.
10. This builds off the last one, every summer I try to make it up the North Shore for my birthday. There are just so many beautiful and awe inspiring stops. Also, great food! Again, I could really go on and on, but you should really explore and find your favorites. Here are a few of mine: Waterfall tour up the shore (https://www.northshorevisitor.com/explore/waterfall-tours/), Betty's pies or The Rustic Inn for pies, (try them both and you decide which is best), Black Sand Beach(make sure you go to the end of the road, so worth it!), Lutsen Lodge for classic American lake lodge with tons of included activities, and I could write a whole newsletter on my love of Grand Marais, but I will just strongly suggest dinner on the dock at The Angry Trout and a visit to Voyageur Brewing Company upper deck.
