It’s day 19 of our 40-day #GetOutAndGO Giveaway, featuring Boom Island Park in the Twin Cities, MN.
Today’s #GetOutAndGO destination is Boom Island Park, located on the bank of the Mississippi River in Minneapolis, MN.
Check out this video of a crew exploring lighthouses along the twin cities section of the Mississippi:
While Minneapolis is surrounded by wonderful places to explore, we shouldn’t overlook the nearly 70 parks inside city limits. Boom Island is an awesome opportunity to fit in a quick adventure after a day at work, or during a weekend exploring what Minneapolis has to offer.
Some history of the park:
Features of the 22-acre park include the famed mini lighthouse, a walking trail, and some of the best skyline views of the city.
It’s a great place to hang out by the water:
And even a good place to get engaged:
As I’m anxiously awaiting the return of green grass and days where Jordan and I can longboard (well he longboards way better than I, but I’m doing good at not falling ?) I will just continue to look back at sessions that remind me of how beautiful Minnesota can be! Be sure to check out Leah & Luke’s Minneapolis engagement session on the blog! Exactly 5 months until they say “I Do” ❤️ #tessajunephotography
To commemorate the simple adventures we can have on a moment’s notice, such as lunch in the park or an evening stroll, Klymit is giving away a $100 gift card. Enter to win here.
Do you live in Minneapolis or plan to visit soon? Take a moment to appreciate Boom Island Park and have a picnic on the banks of the Mississippi.
Get Out And Explore Minnesota!
Minnesota has much to see. We like to stop in the Boundary Waters whenever we get a free weekend, but if we can’t find the time, spending the day fishing or hiking at Whitewater State Park makes for a great day trip. Check out Explore Minnesota for all your trip planning needs.
