Como Zoo and The Walker

My parents were in town from Wednesday until Tuesday recently. We did a ton of activities around the Twin Cities, these posts are my recap of the events. I hope that they inspire you to explore your city whether you live in Minneapolis, St. Paul, or anywhere else.

My parents flew in the afternoon on Wednesday and we didn't do much after they arrived. We ate supper at my apartment and then wandered down Nicollet mall, stopping at Brit's Pub for a beer. The following morning we woke up and headed out the door to check out Como zoo. If you haven't been to Como zoo, you should really take the time to check it out. I've been there three times since moving to Minnesota and have had a great time all three times. I recommend going there in the summer and the winter every year. It may seem strange to recommend a zoo in Winter, but if you go on a fairly warm day, you may get to see tigers playing in the snow. Additionally, the arboretum is a wonderful place to soak up some humid air.

After spending the morning into the early afternoon at Como, we ended up grabbing dinner and walking to the Walker Art Museum. We walked through the Quick and The Dead exhibit and then wandered out to the lawn to catch a bit of Solid Gold's performance. It was good start to the week and included two free attractions in one day.
