• Twin Cities Makes Lonely Planet's Top 10 U.S. Travel Destinations List

     
    FROM THE Summer 2013 ISSUE
     

    “We wanted to dig deeper and shine a light on 10 places in the U.S. that travelers should add to their wish lists for the coming year,” says Robert Reid, Lonely Planet’s U.S. travel editor. 

Lonely Planet listed Minneapolis/St. Paul in the eighth spot on the list of Top 10 U.S. Travel Destinations for 2013. The travel publisher mentioned the extensive network of bike lanes Minneapolis totes, as well as many dining spots around the area, such as Bryant-Lake Bowl, for reasons as to why it made the third annual top destinations list.

"We wanted to dig deeper and shine a light on 10 places in the U.S. that travelers should add to their wish lists for the coming year," says Robert Reid, Lonely Planet’s U.S. travel editor.

Other cities on the list include Louisville, Ky.; Fairbanks, Ark.; and San Juan Islands, Wash.

This fall, chef Jorge Guzman will open a new restaurant, Petite León, in the former Blackbird Cafe space in South Minneapolis. The restaurant will serve dishes with Mexican, Spanish, French, and American influences, that aim to be approachable, creative and delicious.  

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
