I am brining my 80 year-old dad out to visit my sister's family April 26-30th. I have been to Minneapolis several times and we always do the SAME thing. I've been to the Mall of America, seen the Lock & Dam, visited Minnehaha Falls, seen the Rose Gardens, Lake Como Zoo, etc... I want to do something different & FUN as long as it doesn't cost a ton of money. My dad will be happy to stay home and visit with family as long as we have family dinners together. I will have a rental car at my disposal and free time during the day. We will celebrate my brother-in-laws birthday while there. I've noticed that there are a lot of restaurants featured on Diners, Drive In's & Dives in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Are any really worth visiting and are they in a "safe" neighborhood. My sister lives in Burnsville.
