The Chocolate Ox
The Up North equivalent of 50th and France, Nisswa
, just north of Brainerd, is always worth a spin. On hot days, cloudy days, autumn days, and snowy days, this is where generations of families come to see and be seen while shopping, eating saltwater taffy, or sipping a latte.
Edina-style highlights include the thoughtfully named Turtle Town Books & Gifts
, The Chocolate Ox
ice cream and candy shop, Stonehouse Coffee & Roastery
, Lundrigans Clothing
(a northern Minnesota chain), and countless gift shops, home décor shops, and souvenir shops.
