Wake up and smell the local coffee! Then head out to go berry picking, visit a farmers market or catch up with friends over brunch, possibly on the patio. In many parts of Minnesota, hikes pair nicely with nearby breweries, where pets are often welcome to join you. And nothing beats dining by the water in the Land of Lakes. Visit one of the numerous Minnesota restaurants serving walleye (our tasty state fish!) and see how many rooftop bars, pizza farms and other ways to dine outside you can experience this summer.
