So if you are sick and tired of drizzles and downpours, look no further. We’ve put together what we think are 10 of the best activities in the Twin Cities that can keep your family dry (well, mostly) and entertained on a rain day.
On those rainy days when you need to get out of the house, where can you take the kids for a cool change of venue? You want something free or at least inexpensive. How about an indoor putting green at Galaxy Golf? Maybe go rock climbing at REI? Edinborough Park in Edina will keep your kids busy for hours. And who can’t resist getting lost in a bookstore. Do you like nature? I bet your kids do. And who can resist dead animals, okay, they’re taxidermied.
