Brand new visitors center as of this week. Went for the first time with our 9 and 12 year old kids and grandparents. We stayed 2 hours and everyone had a good time. Lots of interaction with animals, chores, and a historical way of life.

This outlet center has a nice collection of stores with great merchandise but it's just too spread out. Whoever designed this thing did a horrible job as you literally have to drive to each section or walk a mile to and from your car. Plus, it's separated by a busy thoroughfare. I just don't get it. But, we just happened upon it on our drive from Minneapolis to St. Cloud and ended up finding a lot of great buys and brand name stores that you don't find at many other outlet centers (North Face and UGG, in particular).

Lupulin Brewing

Reviewed By Kim C - Elk River, Minnesota

The Lupulin Red is my new favorite breakfast. Just kidding, but it really is amazing. It'll be the perfect brew for summer--forget your wimpy shandies and go for a growler of the Red! They've got others, too, and there's good reason this place is my son-in-law's favorite. You can order food from other places and eat it whilst you quaff your favorite Lupulin brew. Enjoy!

I went with my daughter to see Mick Sterling do a Billy Joel tribute show. The show included a lot of deep tracks that didn't get much air time on the radio. It was the first time performing this show and some of the lyrics got messed up but it was still a very enjoyable show.

This is a very nice course. I've golfed here more than once. The course is well maintained and kept. Some of the holes have very narrow fairways on the main course. It's a good course and worth a try....

It was a nice theatre location. Lots of screens, and certainly it was pretty empty too. A decent snack bar, and plenty of parking. The sound system was very nice.

Rum River

Reviewed By John R - Anoka

The Rum River runs right through downtown Anoka. There is a walking and a bike path that runs along the river North from downtown to North of Bunker Lake Blvd. The path runs South in town through Akin Riverside Park.

There is a small dam that is visible from Main Street Anoka. It is lit which makes it nice to see at night.

Besides the park, there is also a fishing platform North of East Main Street by Anoka City Hall. There are benches along the river to sit and relax and just watch the river.

There are also parks on the West side of the River by the Anoka County Fairgrounds, and both North and South of Bunker Lake Blvd.

Depending on what you want to do, you could spend a short time at the park or walking along the river, or make it an entire day and have a picnic, go fishing, or canoeing.

There is also some historical sites along the river in Anoka.
