We did some exploring this chilly Labor Day weekend. Our “local mom” and Matt’s coworker, Ingrid lives in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota and suggested that we visit there. Detroit Lakes is a local vacation spot with lake houses, hotels, a beach area, park, and docks. Everything is decked out with palm trees and other beach inspired decor. We went to a t-shirt shop with piles of t-shirts and sweatshirts and ate at a restaurant called Zorbaz. I tried the PETA pizza and Matt tried the Thai pizza. Both were great and the people there were really nice.
