Activities for Moms in Twin Cities

I am not from the twin cities, but did visit last year with my children and plan to do so again this year.

We went to the Mall of America and walked around, watching people go on the rides - we didn't actually go on any. The Lego store also has a little area out front where they have Lego tables and lots of Legos to play with.

We found LOTS of pumpkin patches and apple orchards that were open, some had petting zoos and other fun things for the kids to do. I was there in the fall, but would imagine they do other things during the rest of the year that would be just as fun.

I think when researching, I had heard good things about the zoo or aquarium - I can't remember which and we didn't have time to actually go.

Do any of you live in (or near) the Twin Cities? I'm sure there are some moms on here that can offer even more advice!

    I live about 30 miles away. We have also done a round-up of the family-friendly open farms around the Twin Cities. These aren’t free, but their prices aren’t bad.
    More to consider:
    -Twin Cities Model Railroad Museum
    -George L. Smith Park
    -Como Zoo
    -Bring your kids to Wild Rumpus bookstore.
    -Go to a Minnesota Twins game in every weather condition.
    -Get lost in the skyway system. While the maze of climate-controlled tunnels can (hypothetically) get you from one side of downtown to the other, the twists and turns can be trying at times.
    The skyway sounds awesome!!! I will have to try that with my kids when we go this year!!!
