Best Place to Take Out-of-Town Guests 

Laumeier Sculpture Park

You say your sister enjoys massive pieces of sculpture made out of 55 steel marine buoys? Your uncle likes to browse unassuming gift shops for glass-art jewelry, books about Andy Warhol and items that appear to be antique cat toys? And your old frat bro has never marveled at giant, Smurfette-like torso pieces positioned near a giant blue clown head? Laumeier Sculpture Park is your all-in-one destination. (Elsewhere in this issue, we designate it Best Museum, and with good reason.) Alternately wooded and open, grassy and paved, this free, 98-acre open-air museum has something for everyone, including art classes for your own inner Picasso. And for nature lovers, there's a bird sanctuary and a small trail leading past Ernest Trova's "Poet" silhouettes, where one recent stroll's sights included two chipmunks, a squirrel with a really, really long tail and two adorable copulating bunny rabbits -- Grandma's favorite!
