Making a return trip to the Bank

Published 9:27 am Saturday, May 5, 2018

On Tuesday, May 8 at 7:30 a.m., we will take another trip to visit the newest home of the Minnesota Vikings. The US Bank Stadium is getting a lot of interest since its opening.  We found walking in this large facility was much easier than we had expected with the escalators and elevators. The only other touring groups were on the other side of the field for a “real look,” plus a chance to walk on the playing field without the chance of catching a football.

The afternoon of this trip is a fun experience as we “Fly over America” at the Mall of America. This simulating realistic ride had us crossing the country with awesome views, through the winds, and mists as we cross Niagara Falls and more. It’s a great  family adventure also.

This trip will duplicate our first visit, along with the same pricing and departure time. Our plan is to return to Austin at 5:30 p.m. We do have some seats available with recent cancellations. Call us at the travel numbers;   507-438-3946 or 507-433-9391.
