Family friendly house in Minneapolis, USA

Thinking ahead to 2018, we are open to all ideas. We can recommend Minneapolis as an interesting destination with warm summer weather.

Minneapolis has a rich history as a grain town on the Mississippi river. The river is a fantastic resource for us. We take advantage of walking and cycle paths above the river. In Summer there are plenty of opportunities for cycling, visiting local lakes, watching a baseball game, and other recreation. We have world class art museums, wonderful spaces for outdoor music, and sporting events. Craft brewing is now thriving, so if you like beer there are many nearby brew pubs. We live in a quiet neighborhood a few miles from the city center. There is a good bus/train network, and we have an estate car/wagon for your use. Outside of the Twin cities of Minneapolis/St Paul, Minnesota has plenty to offer with many state parks, lakes, and wilderness areas. Northern Minnesota remains wild with great recreation opportunities.

Our home has three levels, 4 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms. Although our children are grown and live on their own, our home is family friendly with toys and games. We have high-speed internet and other comforts of city living. We love Intervac and remain friends with our previous exchange families. When our children were younger we exchanged in Sweden, England, Scotland, Germany, and Belgium. We travel as a couple or sometimes with friends. Most recently to France and Iceland.
