August 24th – 25th, 2017
Today we drove to Minneapolis, Minnesota and checked into the Marquette Hotel. We decided to hit the town right away because once again we were only spending one night so we have to see as much as we can. We walked the Riverwalk which was pretty with all the old buildings along the river. We stopped at a place called Astor Cafe and had a glass of wine and a few delicious appetizers to hold us over until dinner. On our way back to the hotel we decided to take advantage of the skywalk. It’s 6 miles of indoor buildings interconnected walkway with a bunch of hotels and stores nearby.
We walked back to the hotel and relaxed a bit before getting ready for dinner. We had booked a reservation at this place called 112 Eatery. Apparently, it’s where all the local chefs go to eat, and it’s difficult to get a reservation there so if you’re interested in going make sure you book early. The food was delightful and interesting at the same time. The menu isn’t simple which is nice for a change.
The next morning we packed the car and drove to see the beautiful
Cathedral of St. Paul, National Shrine of the Apostle Paul which is located in St. Paul, Minnesota. We drove around the Cathedral to see some of the homes which were magnificent.
