Uptown Girl Cupcakes and Dessert

I have crucial tasks when it comes to road tripping and finding good cupcakes is one of them. Lo and behold, I found some. Uptown Girl Cupcakes and Desserts. How cute is this place?!

The Docks of White Bear Lake

Now that’s a view to write home about.. The docks of White Bear Lake are pretty incredible this time of year. You can see everything. Sit dockside at Tally’s, grab food at C.G’s, hang out on the patio at Acqua or Admiral D’s, or just grab an adirondack chair on the marina. Not just a […]

Opened in 2008, the restaurant shares owners with Tally’s but really does its own thing. A Memphis-style BBQ restaurant meets a summer-style Ice Cream Parlor hangout. You can order […]

Tally’s Dockside

The first stay on the #MNBucketListRoadTrip is White Bear Lake – and it should be noted that one of the perks to staying the night somewhere is that you can go out and unwind with friends; have a drink, away from home and still have a place to go (or stumble, I’m not here to […]
