Have you ever been to the Root River Valley town of Lanesboro? If not, and you live in the Midwest, it would be the perfect week-end destination this Summer or Fall. It's my new FAVORITE Minnesota town.
I am fortunate to be blessed with the opportunity to have my Mimi-Toria's jewelry represented and for sale in this quaint and picturesque town. Thus, last week my friend went with me to drop off a release of my Mimi-Toria's jewelry for the GetFresh Vintage Shop.
Lanesboro, was all but becoming a ghost town in the 80's, when someone came up with an idea for reviving their town. And revive it did....
The Root River running through this River valley town, also adds to the ambience of its beauty and brings another draw to its sweet town. Right in town there are canoes, kayaks and tubes for rent to use and access the river with. A great adult get away or one for the family that plays together and likes adventure.

So it is was these vital draws of the river fun and beautiful and vast trail system that initially drew in the tourism and the throngs of people. My friend, Carolyn called this a Mayberry type town. Notice the beautiful architecture of these beautiful buildings.
This building now houses fine dining while in town. There is also a professional theatre that I highly recommend, as well as a local theatre group as well. No movie theaters or fast food places though.
I'm not sure who is tending this garden, but it sure looks healthy and yummy. There is a small food coop for healthy food options in town as well.
I will share in another post more about Lanesboro in another post, and more specifically about my favorite shops in town.
