Caribou is a Minnesota original. This location is about a mile away and offers wifi and pastries as well. Not close to the house? There are plenty of locations all over the city where you can get your favorite. Some locations also have a bagel shop, Einstein Bagels. I love the egg sandwiches at these versions of Caribou.

Entertainment & Activities

Minnesota's State fair runs this year August 23rd to Labor Day September 3rd! Experience one of the countries largest state fairs. You will want to allow at least one to two days to see it. Food! Enjoy "food on a stick" since (most) everything is deep fried and portable. I can recommend some non deep fried alternatives as well. The grandstand attracts many big name bands. There are several free stages as well. Shopping!! Shopping and more shopping!!. Everything you didn't know you needed and many others you actually do are for sale here. Vendors come from far and wide to sell their wares here. Some things you can only get during the fair. The fair is Kristen's Family tradition.
