Lyric Arts Main Street Stage

Reviewed By Melmel79 - Minneapolis, Minnesota

Intimate seating, you feel 'into the show' even if you are in the back row. Amphitheater style seating. Great little bar outside the theater where you can sit prior to the show. Refreshments are allowed in the theater but of course, be mindful to pick them up on your way out. I've really enjoyed the plays put on here, great casts - very friendly box office/refreshment personnel. Perfect off the beaten path theater for a night out in Cozy Anoka!

Elm Creek Singletrack Trail

Reviewed By NANCY B - Champlin, Minnesota

Beautiful trails in the Elm Creek Park Reserve accessed on the west side of Champlin. Ample parking for around 75 vehicles, restrooms availabe and even air for your bicycle tires if needed. Trail is in process of being renovated so some parts are currently closed but you can still enjoy many miles of the trails which go through the woods and past some beautiful scenery as well! Plan to spent at least 1-2 hours in this park on the trail. You won't be disappointed either!

Bunker Beach Water Park

Reviewed By corfu11 - Minneapolis

We've gone for the last several years and loves it every time. There are six water slides, a lazy river, rock climbing walls, basketball and a wave pool that is pretty intense but great fun.

Several food options as well.

48" seems to be the mark you need to hit to be able to go on the bigger slides.

Just go!

Andover Cinema

Reviewed By Phyllis S - Andover, Minnesota

My daughter and I went to see a movie on a Saturday afternoon at Andover Cinema. We decided to try this theater simply because of their advertised Recliner Chair seating. VERY COMFY! As for the rest of the experience, the popcorn was hot and fresh, the theater temperature was comfortable (not so cold you need a winter coat as a few theaters I've been in), the sound level of the movie was great (loud enough to hear well, but not blasting out your eardrums). They had a good selection of candy and soda, as well as other food items like soft pretzels. The theater was clean, the bathrooms were clean. Free parking. Prices consistent with other theaters in the area. First-run movies. We were there on a beautiful, sunny, summer Saturday afternoon, so it wasn't very busy, but I'm sure that once the outdoor activities slow down this fall, you'll want to plan ahead to reserve tickets for the big picture releases.

Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park

Reviewed By ann marie j - Minneapolis, Minnesota

nice stop on the the regional trail bike corridor. Small public area has clean restrooms, as well as machines for snacks. Several times, we have encountered volunteers with high powered telescopes showing the visitors great views of nesting eagles, etc. I particularly like standing on the wide, breezy bridge over the river, connecting the park areas on either shore of the Mississippi river. It is wide, allowing you to linger and enjoy the cool mist arising from the water, and being mesmerized by the rushing, bubbling water, and the roar of the dam.

Also, the Park offers summer programs for kids, exploring the wild, fishing, art, etc.

If you want a great value with high quality productions, direction and acting, you must check out Yellow Tree Theatre. They have had better productions and performances than other theatres in the marketplace. The Twin Cities is filled with 80 or more high quality theatres and this one is definitely in the top 3. You will love the cozy atmosphere, intimate seating so every seat in the house is a good seat!

We took an adventure to the dam and walked around for about an hour. The grandchildren loved watching the water flow over the dam and crash below. It was a good way to spend time together. The bike and walking paths are great!
