    Weekend getaway ideas or things to do this weekend

    My wife and I will be married 2 years this weekend. At first it wasnt a big but now suddenly it is. So just wondering if you guys have any ideas for things in the metro to do or somewhere close. I will even take gift ideas since i am in deep water now.

    If you buy something from Jared, I'll drive to wherever you are and kick you in the pills.
    Take her to an I-Cubs game and buy her a hotdog.

    Re: Weekend getaway ideas or things to do this weekend

    Des Moines Art Festival is all weekend. They have some live music going on:

    Des Moines Arts Festival [ Live Music ] Iowa's free three-day celebration of the arts

    Or, not sure if either of you would be intersted in this, but you could check out the dinner Train:

    Iowa Railroad Historical Society | Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad & Museum | Schedule and Fares | Preserving Iowa's railroad history in Boone, Iowa

    Or just take her to 801 steak and chop for dinner.

    There is also an I cubs game at 7 tonight versus Omaha. Early dinner downtown and then the game?

    Lastly, you are probably asking the wrong person so feel free to ignore my advice.

    I run a campervan rental business near Yellowstone called Campervan North America. Come rent a van and a hand powered blender with margarita glasses, and she will love you for another year!

    We go to the Wildwood when we go but it has a lot of things for the kids to do. There are good places to stay around, good shopping and good food, if you like BBQ. Downtown is a neat place to go to also. There are also some cool bars. There is Worlds of Fun and Oceans of fun. You can catch a ballgame too if the Royals are in town. Some advice go get out of town why you can before you have kids.

    Amana or Galena?

    Not much for you - but anniversaries (like the wedding) aren't for you anyway.

    Come up to the Twin Cities for a romantic roast guinea pig dinner and kopi luwak.
