    A Wealthy of History and Exercise

    When I tried to accurately and critically fill out the "Detailed Ratings," I realized that this book is a cause for embarrassment. It is such an incredible resource in such a small package that there is no good excuse for not taking advantage of it on a regular basis; but I haven't. Walking Twin Cities is a collection of wonderfully designed and beautiful tours decorated with interesting, informative, and entertaining background and history all while providing terrific and simple exercise. Now that I have taken a few of these walks, I feel like an incredible slacker for not having been to all of the places recommended here.

    From the first to the last recommended walk, anyone who gets out and does the work so vividly described in Walking Twin Cities will learn to know their city, better appreciate the wonders and beauty of a historic and modern urban landscape, and become connected to the place where they visit or live. These walking tours are described, turn-by-turn so that even the most direction-impaired walker won't have to worry about getting lost.

    Those of us who are less inclined to walk for exercise and more so for the opportunity to stumble on wonderful restaurants, coffee shops, and other sources of unneeded calories won't be disappointed. In the "Points of Interests" section of every walk, the authors direct their readers to all sorts of eating, drinking, and shopping opportunities. You'd think the local Chamber of Commerce would make a gift of this book to any new resident to the Twin Cities.

    The authors' love of their home is evident in every page of these wonderful tours. Some of that emotion is transferred to every reader who takes the time to read the book and to do a few of the walks described in these pages.
