Let's meet at Isles Bun & Coffee - get there a bit early to sample their famous Puppy Dog Tails--and proceed from there to one of the most beautiful lakes in the Cities. It will be a challenge to pick out your favorite home from among the hundred or so that surround the lake. And when we've made it all the way around, we can continue the promenade to brunch at Barbette.

TCAN: Night Train Exhibit

For kids and kids at heart! The Model Railroad Museum's Night Train Exhibit is a magical depiction of a winter-shrouded village. The lights are turned down, the buildings and street lights glow warmly, setting the scene for specially lighted models of vintage passenger trains. The make-believe town of Matlin is buried in a blizzard, and throughout the Museum the layouts are adorned with miniature Christmas lights and decorations.
