Hello, my husband and I are traveling from Dubuque to Minneapolis for a long weekend in the middle of May. We would like lodging suggestions, average priced, and attractions and sights along the way. Our two main points of interest will be the Aquarium and of course Mall of America. We really would like to stop and visit little out of the way places along the trip. We generally like hiking, antiqueing, historical interests, small towns with "great personality". Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
