Decide for yourself.

Come on down and see for yourself. Still plenty of rooms to book a romantic getaway.

This could be a fun thing for the Southern Minnesota corridor. I would love to see this get the go ahead and give a boost to our wonderful part of Minnesota. Here is an excerpt from the latest news -

Zip Rail Public Comment Period Extended to Aug. 22

ST. PAUL, Minn. – In response to public interest, the Minnesota Department of Transportation extended the comment period to Aug. 22 on a plan for passenger rail service between the Twin Cities and Rochester.

Lets hope this is a go!
