SEARCHING FOR LAKE WOBEGAN--picture of Garrison Keillor from his web page

Situated along the wooded banks of the Mississippi and Sauk Rivers, 65 miles northwest of the Minneapolis-St. Paul, St. Cloud is the epicenter for Lake Wobegan searches. Garrison Keillor’s Lutheran Scandinavian mythical Wobegan contrasts with St. Cloud’s real German Catholic roots. A characteristic of this areas Germanic/Nordic work ethic is punctuality, intolerance for dirt and clutter that is driven into the locals from babyhood. A St. Cloud University professor can start class 5 minutes early because her college students are present and waiting to be taught.

    Better yet, stay at the GrandStay where an apartment suite costs less than half of what the cheapest room at Heritage House will cost. See the sights and spend the saving at the good restaurants available near the hotel! http://www.grandstay.net
