The end of the school year can find some of us itching for a vacation—that is during “normal” years. The public’s comfort level when it comes to travel this summer remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure—our area is chock-full of respite spots and outdoor recreation opportunities.
If you’re looking for some fresh ideas for fun around home, this month’s feature articles offer some creative twists on camping and entertaining. If ground sleeping and hanging your food from a tree branch don’t top your fun list, Hailey Almsted offers a look at Pitched Mpls., which offers its version of backyard glamping and Tiny Tents, which create at-home indoor camping-style experiences for sleepovers and celebrations.
If you’re eager to entertain outside your home, Ava Diaz profiles The Fab Tap, created by Lindsey Pattee. The customizable experience tap trailer provides clients with plenty of creative and classic elements to host an unforgettable get-together without the hassle of set up or clean up.
Diaz also sheds light on Pattee’s business philosophy. “Believing in the power of connection, Pattee has expanded her efforts toward working with other local female-owned enterprises,” she writes … “With hopes of collaborating with more businesses in the future, Pattee says that the relationships developed with other creatives are the best part of owning her own business. ‘That is the beauty of it,’ Pattee says. ‘There are so many talented women out there, and I have met a lot of amazing people.’”
Until next time,
