Family Weekend in Roseville, Minnesota: Perfectly Positioned to Explore

Family Weekend Adventure In and Around Roseville, Minnesota

**Disclosure: Thank you to Visit Roseville for hosting our incredible visit to Roseville, Minnesota! Views are 100% my own.

Over the holiday weekend, we escaped for a family adventure in and around delightful Roseville, Minnesota. Roseville is situated just minutes from so many experiences including the downtowns of both Minneapolis and Saint Paul. We were immediately impressed by the variety of choices we had for our family adventure. We put together an itinerary that allowed us to explore a little bit of everything including amusements, shopping, history, art, fabulous food and more. With such a packed schedule, we needed a spot to rest and we were very fortunate to be staying at the relaxing Residence Inn Minneapolis St. Paul/Roseville!
