2016 Challenge

It has been 5 years since I wrote my book 365 Things to Do in the Twin Cities. Early in the year I was considering rewriting the book for 2016 and realized that it might be fun to see if I can post a different event, attraction or activity here every day for the entire year.

So I am going to give it a try – I have successfully posted attractions and events for the first 7 months.

I can hardly believe that summer is here already. The year has really been going quickly for us.

Here is my challenge for you - pick one thing each month to do with your family.

To help you out I am providing a list of events and attractions – 1 per day - click on the blog to see this months list.

If you spend quality time with the people you love most once a month for the entire year I promise you will see a profound difference in your life.




You can also Check out the Attractions page for a list of over 70 local family friendly places to visit.

Sadly my children are no longer of an age where we regularly spend time doing these fun things together – this change has prompted me to start a new series of articles. I am reading Building Better Familiesby Matthew Kelly and sharing my thoughts on what I read.

I have included links to reviews for those that my family has visited. We haven’t been everywhere yet, but we keep working on it. There always seems to be something new opening up that we want to visit. There just aren’t enough hours in the week to get it all done.


If you have any questions please email me at dmarcottefreelance(at)live(dot)com.

I love to hear from other parents.
