Your May Scouted - Dive Into the Month of May With Leisure at These Local Spots

A floral themed graphic with "Your May Scouted" written in elegant cursive over a background of pink hydrangea flowers, symbolizing the fresh blossoms of spring and the essence of The Scout Guide's stylish exploration of curated content.

This winter in Minnesota it snowed, we wore boots, it rained, we wore shorts, and some days we were left wondering, “Do we wear the shorts with the boots?” Needless to say, it was a confusing time for us all. Now that spring has sprung and those days are behind us, we can trust that Mother Nature has gotten over her little winter tantrum. It’s time to get out and enjoy all that Minneapolis has to offer. So many local businesses have their springtime doors open with entertaining goings-on and fresh offerings, and if you’re like us, it’s hard to decide where to go first. We hope the list below gives you a good jumping-off point, and we promise, you won’t have to wear a coat. Maybe pack a jacket, though, just in case.
