Are you looking for a couple’s weekend getaway? In your day to day busy-ness there is much to desire with time away from everything and everyone. Yes that includes the kids as well. We were fortunate to be able to get away for a few days of just the two of us to reconnect and re-shift the focus to us.
We were so excited to experience La Grande Roue de Montréal during our recent visit to Old Montréal. Located right on Old Port where all the action is at, this was the perfect place to be. La Grande Roue is a climate-controlled as well as the tallest observation wheel in Canada. Allowing visitors to see the city and its beautiful surrounding in a 360 panoramic view from 60 meters in the air, which is equivalent to a 20 story building. On a clear day, visitors can see 28 km away.
With 10,000+ lakes in Minnesota, you would guess that there is no shortage of outdoor water fun. However, there are just so many months that we can enjoy the outdoor water fun. For those rainy days or cold winter months where the kids are asking for some swimming fun, what better way to take them than to an indoor waterpark. Minnesota does not disappoint with its indoor water fun option.
Thank you Minnesota Children’s Museum for sponsoring this post. Minnesota Children’s Museum provided us with tickets to explore and enjoy the museum. All opinions are my own.
Minnesota Children’s Museum is located in downtown Saint Paul and opens all year round. It has three floors of fun for kids to explore and run around. The boys are super excited to spend a day at the Minnesota Children’s Museum. We have been there many times before and they always enjoy their time there. Each time is always a different experience. Be prepared to be here for at least 2-3 hours. This would allow the kids ample time to explore all there is to offer and really be able to enjoy it.
We had decided to take a long weekend trip without the kids for my big 40. We have never traveled without them and was super hesitant to be away from them for that long. I mean, who does that? Leaving their kids behind while having fun. Well, I am glad we did and will continue to take breaks from our kids. We all need a break and reconnect with ourselves and each other.
