If you ever get the chance to take a cruise down the Mississippi River while in the Twin Cities, DO IT.
I had the opportunity to take an abbreviated version of a boat ride offered in Saint Paul from Harriet Island this summer while I was in the city during the closing night party of a conference I attended. It was so amazing that I didn’t even want to be distracted with trying to take beautiful pictures of the river.
However, I did manage to snap a couple of (noisy) shots with my iPhone.
I’d recommend taking a cruise in the evening, because there’s really nothing quite like seeing the skies transition from blue to pink to black.
More importantly, there’s nothing like witnessing Saint Paul’s gorgeous skyline in the night!
