In May, 2011, me and a few friends visited Walnut Grove, MN during a road trip. My sister and I are big fans of the Laura Ingles Wilder stories. We were extremely excited about having lunch at Nelly's Diner, shopping at Oleson's Mercantile, visiting the museum and the dugout, and swimming in Plum Creek! But, the town was a ghost town! Everything was run down and poorly maintained. I was very disappointed! It was NOTHING like the website made it out to be. We had planned on camping at the campground near Plum Creek, and it was ok (nothing to write home about). However, the weather was not suitable. We then had to drive another 45 minutes to find a decent place to stay. We had planned to stay for two days here. Instead, we decided to continue our trip the next morning and drive straight to Tennessee (approximately 19 hours). We didn't visit any of the sites during our visit because it simply wasn't worth our time! Sadly, I don't have any pictures. But, trust me; it's a long stretch of road leading to a whole bunch of nothing!
