Stay in Shakopee, Minnesota and shop, dine, hike, bike and cheer to your heart’s content. Spend a day at Canterbury Park for live horse racing, a year-round casino, events like wiener dog races, beer festivals and more. Take a spin on the rides or splash in the Soak City waterpark at Valleyfair, the Upper Midwest’s largest amusement park. Love the outdoors? Hop on a trail by bike or hike through the Minnesota River Valley. Visit the Minnesota museum, The Landing, and learn about life along the Minnesota River in the 1800’s or travel back to the 1600’s with knights and nobles at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, the largest in the country. One main attraction you can’t miss is the big yellow barn on Highway 169 known as Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store. They sell every type of candy imaginable including vintage favorites and sodas, pies, cotton candy, popcorn and so much more. Shop local at unique boutiques and finish the day with dinner at a nearby restaurant, from casual to fine dining, coffee shops to cafes.
