When thinking of a prime spring destination, Minneapolis is rarely in the top 10. Isn’t it always cold and larger than Los Angeles? If you put Minneapolis and Saint Paul together (as they are the Twin Cities), then yes it is large. However, it’s not always below 0 degrees and worth a visit during the springtime! When we visited, it was a mild 50 degrees, making it a perfect time to explore the cities.
Not sure where to start as a Viva Glam girl? We slept on the Mississippi River, shopped at local vintage stores, and ate at the first vegan butcher shop in America. Now’s a great time to hop on a train to Union Depot and see our favorite sights.
THE COVINGTON INN
When we first heard of the possibility that we could sleep on the Mississippi River, we were intrigued. Whether you arrive by plane or train, you are under two miles away from this luxurious B&B, called The Covington Inn, that is officially on Harriet Island in Saint Paul. With only four staterooms, it’s a lovely way to kick back and get away from the big city that’s just across the river. If you stay in the Master’s Quarters like we did, you get a view of the city from your room, a private fireplace, and easy access to the deck where breakfast is served.
The Covington Inn is one of the few floating B&Bs in America so it’s an opportunity you won’t want to miss.
