Although I've done a fair amount of traveling over the past few months (I went to D.C. in January, Chicago in February, and Austin in March), I've been itching to get out of town and see a few new sights. It's crunch time in my (LAST) semester, which I'm sure has a lot to do with my antsy-ness, but I would basically give anything to be laying on a beach or exploring a new city right about now.

When Ryan asked what I'd like for a graduation gift, I responded with a vague "to go somewhere", which I'm sure he appreciated. So I'm trying to think about it and narrow it down somewhat. So, my dear reader(s), I need your help. Do you know of any super secret awesome places in or near Minnesota that are relatively inexpensive but still fun and memorable? Bonus points for cozy lodging, delicious food, and unique shopping and sight-seeing. Or, if not, tell me a story of your favorite vacation so I can live vicariously through you!
