Cheap, fun things to do in Minneapolis

Derek and I often have people stay at our house, and so we are often looking for cheap, fun things to do in the Twin Cities. Of course, there are lots of expensive, fun things to do, but I am convinced that the cheap, fun things take some exploring…

So, here is the list that we have come up with so far of fun things to do under $10:
The Saint Paul Cathedralfree (just mind Mass hours)
The Midtown Global Market“looking is free!” Although, you’d be crazy to not get hummus and pita chips from the Holy Land market. There is often live music on the weekends.

The Stone Arch Bridge and Locksfree

Minneapolis Farmer’s Market free (March-November)

St. Paul Farmer’s Marketfree (year ’round)

Teddy Bear Park in Stillwaterfree, great for children!

Como Zoo and Conservatory$2 adults, $1 children – suggested donation (year ’round)

Nelson’s Ice Cream in Stillwater$3-something for a 2-flavor, child-size cone (about 8 scoops) (April-October)

The 5-8 ClubHamburger and fries for $4.95. Home of the Juicy Lucy and famous Onion Straws (when your arteries need a good clogging).

Swing Dancing at the Wabasha Street Caves$7 for walk-in lessons and dancing (every Thursday evening)

The Foshay Tower Museum and Observation Deck$8 suggested donation for adults, children under 12 are free (see the website for times)
