Our First Trip To Paul Bunyan Land in Brainerd MN

This last weekend my best friend Stacy and I decided to bring our kids to Paul Bunyan Land. I was so excited to have my daughter experience the same fun that I had when I was a kid! Although it's changed locations since then, it was a great time!!

Admission was reasonable as well as souvenirs. We enjoyed a picnic on site before in the huge picnic area. There are appx 20 rides and we rarely waited in line and the kids were able to ride multiple times in a row if no one else was waiting. In addition to the amusement park, they have another attraction called "The Pioneer Village" which are a whole bunch of small buildings in a village filled with the antiques associated with the theme of each building. Very Cool!  I would highly recommend this attraction to any family looking for something to do during summer! We will be going every year!
