Your Twin Cities guidebook

Tom Weber, a host for Minneapolis Public Radio, is out with a new book encouraging local exploration — 100 Things to Do in the Twin Cities Before You Die.

“A lot of times people hear about cool things and make that mental note, ‘I should do that some day,’” he said. “When it comes time to think of things to do, they forget. I hope this is a way to have a list ready togo so the next time you’re sitting around wondering what to do, you just open the book.”

Indeed, families will find much to inspire them in the book, including the Mill City Museum and a hike near Minnehaha Falls.

Weber said he was surprised by how much fun he had at the museum.
