Where I stayed
We then found a Mississippi lock because I had never seen a boat taken up by that type of system.
The lock we found raises or lowers a boat some 38 feet to the new river level. Turns out that the control room was open only one day a year and we happened to be there that day
After the lock experience, we checked out some of the local lakes where hundreds of people were running, swimming, and biking. It's a physically very active city!
We then took a quick trip to the worlds first indoor mall called Southdale Mall. No one knew how it would go over. Many believed it would be a total flop. BUT!!! The proof is in the pooding. :-) Southdale was the beginning of something big! In fact, the biggest mall in the country is also in Minnapolis. We're going there tomorrow! It's called The Mall Of America.
