Love in the City – Great Dates in the Twin Cities
By Emily Anderson
It has been a long, cold winter. For those of us who can't escape to warmer climates, the next best alternative is to find an oasis in the tundra. Minnesota's beautiful Como Zoo Conservatory provides a much needed respite from the cold. Treat your special someone and yourself to a unique Valentines dinner. I can think of nothing more refreshing and relaxing than to spend an enchanted evening in a lovely lush garden, while the winter wind whips outside.
Check out the Conservatory's website for more information.
