During the extended weekend of the Minnesota Education Association annual conference, families by the vanload high-tail it out of town. But where to go? A Minnesota family with four children ranging in age from 6 to 12 e-mailed to ask me for suggestions. “We’re looking for a place that offers outdoor activities, such as hiking. However, if the weather should be unpleasant, it’d be nice to be near touristy things, such as museums or historical sites,” the mother wrote. Also on the wish list: indoor swimming pool, outdoor basketball or tennis courts and a drive of less than six hours.
