Today we had gone to downtown Minneapolis. There were around 30% chances of rain as per the weather prediction today. We took a chance and went ahead with the plan. After looking online for some of the nearby places. I found the site yahoo travelguide useful with a listing of near by places with user review.
We Planned to go to the following places
1. Falls of St. Anthony -directions
2. Minnehaha Falls Pegoia Garden -directions
3. Minneapolis Institute of Arts -directions
We were late the museum closes at 5pm so we decided to drop the idea.
4. LAKE calhoun -directions
We had to take maps with us since in US you need too know the directions to any place you decide to go because once you are on the freeway and if you miss a exit then you might have to go for miles before you can take a exit and get back on track. We collected the maps from the office and started at 1.30. All the place were good.
At the lake Calhoun I saw some wind surfer's. I thought there was a sailing club and I can come there and do some surfing some time. But all of them had brought their own boards :(. But Minnesota state being with 10000 lakes I am sure there might be a lake where there is a sailing/ surfing school :)
