This past weekend I participated in my third jogging tour around the Twin Cities with Twin Cities Jogging Tours. They are so much fun and I’m already looking forward to #4!
The first tour I went on was the Haunted Jogging Tour which took place last October (during the creepiest time of year!). We jogged around St. Paul and visited some of the haunted sites around town. We learned so much and had a wonderful time getting to know our tour guide and owner of Twin Cities Jogging Tours, Angie. Here are some pics from the first tour (all photos taken from Angie’s facebook page Twin Cities Jogging Tours):

Hanging out with Izzy at the Science Museum
We thought the lighting paired with the orange leaves looked neat – we are right across the street from Forepaugh’s Restaurant
Our second tour was the Christmas lights tour in St. Paul. There were some pretty lights, but overall the consensus was that St. Paul needs to step it up next year! Here are some photos with some of the lights we were able to see.
I can’t remember where this was, but the tree was really tall and we were impressed at the dedication to decorate all the way to the top!
Governor’s residence decorated for the season
This tree was STUNNING in person – can you imagine how many strings of lights this must have taken??
Last weekend’s tour was down in the St. Anthony area of Minneapolis where we learned about the old mills and the rebirth of Minneapolis in St. Anthony and across the river. There was a bride doing a photo shoot (it was 30 degrees and sunny, but STILL) and lots of runners enjoying the beautiful weather before the snowstorm arrived Monday. Here are some photos from the tour:
It was a beautiful Minnesota winter day!

I *love* this one…we are nerds 🙂
Angie was delightful as always and we all really enjoyed ourselves. I’m hoping the Minneapolis downtown tour will be the next one we book with her. I highly recommend booking one of these if you’re at all interested. She goes at whatever pace is comfortable for you (even doing walking tours for those non-runners), and is so knowledgeable. Check her out: Twin Cities Jogging Tours!
Have a wonderful rest of your week!!
