Woodbury Magazine June 2024 Issue

For many Minnesota and Wisconsin residents, Memorial Day weekend marks the start of boating season—my husband and me included. For the past several years, we’ve enjoyed boating on a warm summer day out on the St. Croix River or an evening out on the water in the Lake Elmo Park Reserve. Every so often, we even manage to get out on kayaks for a bit of quiet time.

You know how it goes: We pack our charcuterie, grab an ice-cold beverage, lather up on sunscreen and enjoy what the Midwest has to offer. I stand by the idea that there’s truly nothing better than being out on the water in the summertime. Whether that be paddling your kayak, fishing from your canoe or living it up on your pontoon—which gets my vote!

In our June issue, we invite you to take a drive to the neighboring St. Croix Valley for a day out on the water. Writer Zoe Yates recommends a few items to pack in your boating bag—from what to drink to the accessories you’ll want to make your day perfect. If you have a sweet tooth like me, I recommend ending your day with a taste of ice cream. If you’re in the Valley, I highly recommend a stop at Selma’s Ice Cream Parlor over in Afton or Nelson’s Ice Cream in Stillwater for a heaping serving. Right here in Woodbury, head to Bridgeman’s Ice Cream Parlor for a delectable scoop that’ll satisfy all your cravings.

Whether you’re cruising the river or staying beachside, enjoy all that summer has to offer.

See you on the river, readers,

Hailey Almsted
