It almost pains me to write this, as a loyal Gobbler (my high school mascot was a turkey) I really don’t want to admit how much fun I had in Crosby on Saturday, and how many cool things there are to do these days.
Coffee: Red Raven (brand new) I ate there for a late lunch, but I’d start your day there get some coffee and explore an antique store (if that’s your thing) OR….do what I would do and rent a kayak and have it taken to the mine pits. If your more adventurous, rent a mountain bike and check out the trails. (Cycle, Path and Paddle)
Beer: Cuyuna Brewing! (brand new) I bought a growler as a gift for the hosts that I stayed with over 4th of July weekend and recommend you do the same. Another great option, Crosby Bar (linked to their facebook because I’m not sure if they have a website).
Food: Red Raven and Crosby Bar as listed above, or also new on the scene is Iron Range Eatery (owned by the same folks who run Prairie Bay in Baxter).
Workouts: Kayaking and Mountain Biking like I mentioned, but you can also utilized the paved path that connects the mountain bike trails for walks, runs, and road bikes. I also recommend the Crosby park for taking a picture with the Serpent, kids playing on the playground, and utilizing the beach!
What is your favorite place to stop “up north”?
Any places I didn’t mention but should have?
