<<<<My wife and I, and two friends are looking into taking a road trip to somewhere within a day (can be a long day) of driving from the Twin Cities.>>>>>>>>Best of these options IMHO is Duluth and the North Shore of Lake Superior. Duluth is a great city with its Canal Park and lakeshore areas, the drive to Lutsen is wonderful with rivers, cliffs, lighthouses (Split Rock) and waterfalls (Gooseberry, Temperance River) along the way -- one of the U.S. Scenic Drives. It is unlike the rest of the Midwest. Thunder Bay is a nice trip, but to get there in a day would be missing too much. As for Winnipeg, the scenery en route is boring (Minnesota's best areas are, with few exceptions, along the eastern edge. Kansas City? OK town, but getting there is a drag. Not all that difference from MSP except for better BBQ and the wonderful Negro Leagues museum. Lots of soybean and corn fields along the way.A second option would be up to Duluth and over to Bayfield (nice B&Bs) and the ferry out to Madeline (sp?) Island.
