Clemens Gardens

Picturesque garden with red-brick walkways gives visitors a feast for the senses.

Reviewed By Lianwilson24 - Clarksville, Tennessee

If you are seeing Clemens, you must see Munsinger as well as they are connected! The gardens are tastefully planned. If you have no interest in gardens, it's just an incredibly beautifull area! Pathways are lovely, filled with color of both annuals and perrenial selections. The hardscape is reminicient of those grand gardens of noble houses. Shaded and sunny areas allow for a varied experience. A photographer's dream!

Quarry Park and Nature Preserve

Reviewed By Kaley B

We live near Brainerd MN and I've always had friends who visited the quarries. Not quite sure why I never went until now, but I'm definitely glad I did. The views were gorgeous. The swimming areas were beautiful and very refreshing water! There was music playing and people diving in from the cliffs. Lucky I live so close to something so beautiful ! Definitely recommend to anyone who visits st.cloud!

Saint John's University

Reviewed By curioustravelor2010 - Becker, Minnesota

My wife and I visit the St John's campus every fall. We like to walk the trail around the lake to the chapel (The trail is not handicapped accessible.) The scenery is gorgeous. The fall colors are astounding. The campus has a mix of older and new buildings. We always visit the campus church, which is always open. We like the ambience of this campus and look forward to our visit each fall.

Bad Habit Brewing Company

Reviewed By Theresa C

This is a great craft brewery that is within walking distance from the College of Saint Benedict. It has a great selection of beers as well as lemonade and fresh brewed root beer for those who are underage. No food but lets you bring in or order food from surrounding establishments. A fun hangout that closes early so eliminates people from getting too drunk.

Located along the scenic Mississippi River, these gardens are known for their shade-loving plants including numerous hostas and ferns.

Reviewed By CoopyCob - Twin Cities, MN

We always enjoy our visit. It is a very peaceful setting. Very beautiful when the garden is in bloom. Small garden store but not much else around the garden so need to motor for lunch.

Great theater in the St Cloud area, the upgrades with VIP seating and recliner seats in several theaters make this even better than it was before. Also being able to order food from Zafffiro's along with drinks for the show is a real perk.

Beaver Island Brewery

Reviewed By tdw295 - Regina, Canada

Super friendly server. Nice selection of beers. Tried the hoppy styles and both were very good. A must stop if you are in the area. The building is a beautifully remodelled car dealership from many years ago. Worth the visit just to see the building.

Stearns History Museum

Reviewed By Hawkdriver1974

My family and I visited the museum and left extremely pleased with the experience. The inside if very neat, clean, and well organized. It is a very professional museum. Right off the bat we were having fun looking at the animal display. I didn't know about the significant role granite played in this areas history. I especially loved the section dedicated to recognizing individuals that contributed to the success of the area. This time emphasis was placed upon medical professionals. They have a research room, which coincidentally, my wife was able to get help with a genealogy question she'd been unable to answer using their staff and their Ancestry.com access.

Surrounding the museum are several trails which are shaded. They were empty and a little dirty, but we did encounter a woodpecker and completed a Geocache. Lastly, we stopped to watch the kids at the skate park which was a nice end to the visit.

Note: when I provided my military ID with my credit card, my family and I were kindly given free access. I didn't ask, but was very appreciative of this kind gesture.
