I was looking at our upcoming drive (less than two months away!) from here to Ottawa in September and it wouldn't be that much of a detour to get to the city of Minneapolis. Has anybody been there who would like to offer their opinion?
We are going to take the American route which will bring us through parts of North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
Our approximate route to Ottawa.
2,976 kms (1,845 miles).
Yes, we're going to go through Killarney, Manitoba, Kathy and CJ...looking forward to meeting you if the offer still stands! And if any of our other readers live close to this route, we would happily make an effort to meet up!
Taking in Killarney, Manitoba and Minneapolis, would add about 300 kms (180 miles) to the trip.
But would it be worth it? In the little blue car that's less than $25 worth of fuel. So it's not the cost of gas that we're thinking of, it's the extra day's drive.
Of course we love to visit different cities. But while we were thrilled with Chicago and Pittsburgh, we were not as impressed with Oklahoma City or Albuquerque. So what do you think? Is Minneapolis worth a detour?
