Summer in the St. Croix Valley

The St. Croix River in Hudson is beautiful year round but summer is the best.  Options for the active are swimming, sailing, boating, fishing, and water skiing.  If you just like to watch the world and the water go by, that's an option too.  Hudson's Riverwalk along the old toll bridge road stretches almost all of the way across the river to Minnesota.   You can see Minnesota from here!

This coming Monday at 7:00pm the River City Chorale concert - rescheduled from this past Monday  - will give their annual outdoor concert. Tuesday and Thursday evenings bring more music to Lakefront Park's bandshell.  Tomorrow, August 4, the Minnesota Jazz Orchestra will perform.  Redpath, Acoustic Country music is scheduled for Tuesday, August 9.  Also scheduled for August are  the St. Paul Police Band, Dirty Shorts Brass Band and Caleb Hawley - straight from American Idol.  The entire schedule can be seen on http://www.hudsonwi.org/ .

Some of our Phipps Inn Bed & Breakfast guests have picked up a picnic at Urban Olive and Vine on Second Street and enjoyed a picnic in the park.  Urban Olive has fabulous sandwiches and salads and to-die-for desserts.  Pier 500 has the best outdoor seating for river viewing - and the food is outstanding as well.  Get there early for a prime spot.

Relaxing and the river - they just happen to go together!
