Enjoy Eagan Road Trip Itinerary – Part 1: The Eastside
Word on the street is that we have a few friends itching to safely travel again! Which is why we are so excited to introduce the first of a four-part mini blog series of road trip itineraries. These blogs are designed for you to use as they are or to customize them in our app with our personalized itinerary builder. Without further ado!
Nothing kicks off summer like a refreshing road trip to the largest outdoor municipal waterpark in the Upper Midwest! Make a splash with the whole family down one of their thrilling water slides or take it easy in the lazy river. There are areas for the younger swimmers too! Before you go and while you’re drying off, you have to take a shot at their nine-hole miniature golf course.
Hiking is an activity that is not only fun but good for us! However, if it is not for you, you can also go swimming, hammocking, biking, kayaking, or canoeing at Lebanon Hills Regional Park and reap all the being-in-nature benefits! *Please contact park for rental availability.
Without a doubt Eagan’s public art is not exclusively on the east side of Eagan, but there are some exhibits dispersed over here and we wouldn’t want you to miss it! Explore art installations, art benches and the recently added HeArt of Eagan with a self-guided tour via this interactive map.
Here you go history fans! Settled in the 1870s, this historic farm was about to become residential developments in Eagan when a group of residents banded together to create a grassroots campaign that would preserve this piece of their community as a living history farm by purchasing the farm in 1995. Experience family life from the Great Depression through World War II with their walking tour booklet!
Wrap the day up with a delicious meal from any one of the delectable dining destinations nearby and a quick visit to Cupcake Bakery or T-Rex Cookie Kitchen!
This is just a little taste of the summer that is waiting for you in Eagan! Stay tuned for part two next week and don’t forget to customize your own trip with our itinerary builder or download the Enjoy Eagan app on your Apple or Android today!
