My family will be visiting the Twin Cities this July from the 19th through the 24th. We have visited the area many times with our three children ages 5, 7, and 12 and are looking for new and affordable things to do. Tonight while researching I saw that the Aquatennial will be going on during our stay and I'm a bit curious about it.
I'm wondering if it's too crowded to even bother with first off? I'm a bit afraid of driving around areas we don't know when they are super crowded. I'd love to check out the Star Tribune Beach Bash and the pre parade and parade as well. We just aren't at all familiar with the lakes and where we would need to go.
I guess what I'm getting at is if this is something that is too overcrowded and expensive to be worth it? I'd just like to get a better handle on what we would be getting ourselves into.
