Day Trip: Simply Stillwater & Tea in historic Inn

We will go to a 4-course high tea in historic Lowell Inn in Stillwater. Stillwater is one of the first towns in Minnesota and with all the adaptive reuse of former businesses is an appealing place to walk on the main street or along the river.

Did you know they even have a teddy bear park by their library?
