At least according to WCCO…
Northfield Historical Society/Museum
The Defeat of Jesse James Days
Cannon River Walkway/Bridge Square
Riverwalk Market Fair
Northfield Arts Guild
Carleton and St. Olaf Colleges
and Sports, Sports, Sports.
As a”bonus”, they mention Malt-O-Meal.
Here’s what the folks at WCCO say about our downtown:
“Located on Division Street, you can spend hours strolling up and down historic downtown Northfield. The brick buildings that line downtown for several blocks are spotted with shops, restaurants, coffee shops and small businesses. The shopping is ideal if you’re looking for boutiques and antiques with unique names (Oolala and Sisters Ugly) and rare finds. You can take a break by grabbing a cup of joe and a bakery treat at Goodbye Blue Monday Coffeehouse or Quality Bakery and Coffee Shop. Or take in a meal at places like Rueb-N-Stein or Contented Cow Pub.”
We appreciate WCCO’s admiration for Northfield, particularly our downtown. However, we will note that they only recognized four of our over two dozen downtown dining options and two of our over four dozen shopping options. I guess they under-promised and we’ll over-deliver.
