The Nice Ride bikes located right across the street from our hotel are still out and with plenty of locations city wide to drop off and pick up again, it is a great way to take in the views of the trees turing colors from all kinds of locations. They are very inexpensive to rent and a wonderful way to get outdoors still. Nice Ride MN.
Of course don’t forget that St. Paul Farmers Market is still in full swing until October with the Downtown Market open both Saturdays and Sundays and is just blocks from our hotel. If you have never been you need to check this out! It is by far one the biggest and best markets you will ever see. Think about how great your next slow cooker meal will be with fresh veggies from the market!
Why not spend a chilly Saturday or Sunday afternoon learning, the new exhibit Lost Egypt will be opening at the Science Museum October 13th. This exhibit uses hands-on activities, real artifacts like a real human mummy, a recreation of real Egyptian tomb, and more to reveal how scientists use modern science and technology to uncover and understand the ancient civilization of Egypt. Sounds pretty cool to me.
Maybe looking for something to do inside on a chilly night? Check out the Minnesota Rollergirls Derby at Roy Wilkins Auditorium. These events are not only fun to see but raise money for great causes. They donate portions of every bout to local area charaites. Visit The Roller Girls to find out more about this charitable group and view their schedule.
October is just around the corner and you know what that means! Fall beer! Good thing The Beer Dabbler just opened a brand new store right down the street from us where you can find all of the great beers St. Paul and other breweries have to offer. Don’t forget to get your tickets to the 4th Annual Beer Dabbler at the winter carnival in January. Tickets go on sale November 6.
Don't forget, the Crowne Plaza St. Paul Riverfront hotel is just minutes away from some of Minnesota's most exciting attractions such as Minnesota Science Museum, Como Zoo, Mall of America, Target Field, and Xcel Energy Center.
Remember here at the Crowne Plaza we have something for everyone. No one says you have to travel far to get a little vacation so come over to St. Paul for the weekend and experience all sorts of new and exciting things.
Enjoy your fall and all the activities that come with it. Until next time-Adena
