I love living in the city, but I enjoy visiting the country side.
There are so many beautiful towns in Minnesota, and today we decided to visit Jordan, which is about a 45 minute drive from St. Paul.
We started with Broadway street, because we found a church on this street and there is usually a main street or the center of the town where church is.
And we found our first stop, Carasim Coffee Shop.
It’s an old-fashioned coffee shop/diner owned by a couple, who were behind the counter today.
I had coffee, and Terry had tea and Kemps raspberry chocolate ice cream.
We walked around the downtown, which is quite small, where you’ll find several antique shops and other businesses.
I found this small house? which had a sign that said “GRAMPA’S HIDEOUT”.
This, Feed Mill Restaurant, was on our list, too, but we were a little late to get there.
They are only open until 2 p.m.
This was also on our list, but it just appeared in front of us when we were strolling.
This old-fashioned baseball stadium certainly fits perfectly well in this quiet town and gives you the nostalgic feel.
We then drove to Lagoon Park nearby (everything is so closely located) to see the falls.
Small but pretty.
And we were off to the last destination before we left Jordan, Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store!
This large yellow building is hard to miss.
This place is quite impressive.
Much larger than I expected!
You can find everything, from your childhood favorites to new comers, from locally made pies to European and Japanese candies.
Unusual flavors ever!
Hello, Hello Kitty.
We spent a few hours in this town, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Loved the country feel, and the people were very nice and friendly.
It was such a beautiful Summer day in Minnesota today.
Can’t wait to explore more small towns this summer.
I’m on Instagram.
