There are a few different locations of Red Cow, but they all feature the most melt-in-your-mouth burger you will ever experience. Brunch, lunch, and dinner are all amazing there. You won't regret trying any burger, any appetizer, or any side dish there.

This is a pricier place, but they have some great lunch specials. You have all of the fresh meat you could want brought to your table on giant skewers. Plus, the salad bar is unreal.

Blue Door Pub is our favorite restaurant. They have juicy lucys, which is a MN speciality. It is a burger that gushes out cheese. I always go for the wings myself.

Sightseeing
No matter the season, we encourage everyone we know to check out the falls. The winter makes the stairs and trails a bit more treacherous, but it's worth the slipping and sliding to get the best views. Plus, you can hike behind the falls if it's frozen enough. Then in the summer, there are some sweet spots to swim. It feels like you are in a whole other world even though you are minutes from the city.

This isn't a common sight to see, but it is the oldest (and most beautiful) building in Minneapolis. It was built in 1898 and has a great history. There is an audio tour available throughout the building. For parking, Haaf ramp is the cheapest option, but it tends to fill up. Try the lightrail instead to avoid a headache!

Where do I start with MOA?! This place has everything you could want. Restaurants, desserts, shopping (high-end to thrift stores), live performances, giant lego creations, movie theater, go-karts, escape rooms, virtual reality places, mirror maze, and an entire indoor amusement park.

Minneapolis has all sorts of escape rooms, and this location is in my top two. Prison Break is a very unique room that true crime nerds can appreciate. Gold Rush is a great room for beginners. Then Special Ops is my favorite room there.

Ice Cream Spots
I am an ice cream fanatic, so I make it a point to hit up all of the ice cream shops regularly. I have included some of my favorites!
Nelson's has a wide array of flavors and is a great deal. You only need to get the kid sized cup or cone because it is MASSIVE. There is also an aggressive ice cream eating challenge. The Lumberjack is not for the timid. Five softball-sized scoops of any flavor arrangement and choice of toppings, allows for countless combinations. Here is the best part… if you finish this goliath alone, your picture will be enshrined on Nelson’s “Wall of fame”.

Sebastian Joe's is a staple of Minnesota ice cream. In the summer, it would not be surprising to have the line out the door and around the block. My favorite is the raspberry chocolate chip.

Milkjam is a super unique ice cream shop. They have wild flavors like sweet garam masala spiced oat and greek yogurt with passionfruit lychee swirl. My favorite is Black aka the darkest dark chocolate. It can get packed at peak hours, so if you want a table try to be strategic with your timing.
