15 essential outdoor activities to do this summer in Twin Cities
Finally, finally, FINALLY: It's warm outside. We're now in the meteorological definition of summer, and it's time to get out around town.
Why it matters: After a long winter and a very short spring, we're in that limited window of perfect weather. Take advantage of it as much as you can.
- Here are some of our recommendations for a (hopefully) sunny June.
🏊♀️ For the swimmer: Minneapolis and St. Paul public pools are open now (though lifeguard shortages continue). You can also rent a private pool yourself for about $75/hour, or take advantage of our lakes.
- Prefer biking? Check out our trail recommendations.
🍦 For the foodie: It's ice cream season. Stop by Licks Unlimited and explore downtown Excelsior, try brand new shop Dream Creamery in Minneapolis, or get classic soft-serve at Conny's Creamy Cone in St. Paul.
