Tales of the Road is on the move!

Filed under: Authors, Contest, MHS press — reyescarlosa @ 8:41 am


Minnesota Public Radio Morning Edition host Cathy Wurzer, author of Tales of the Road: Highway 61, has worked hard to keep up to date with the digital age. From blog posts to Twitter feeds, she’s got all the bases covered. But nothing excites her more then the recent launch of her new website, the improved and inviting Tales of the Road.

In honor of the new website, we would like to hear from you. What is your favorite place to visit along Highway 61? Is it the North Shore’s Split Rock Lighthouse? Could it be the Aerial Lift Bridge in the picturesque city of Duluth? Or maybe the Apple Capitol of Minnesota, located in the quaint town of La Crescent, is more your style.

Whatever it may be, leave a comment telling us your favorite attraction located on Highway 61 and you will be entered to win your very own copy of Cathy Wurzer’s Tales of the Road: Highway 61. Entries will be accepted from today until Monday, August 15, with the winner announced on next Tuesday’s blog post. Good luck, and happy commenting!

  1. LARK Toys in Kellogg–does that count as an attraction? It’s one of our family’s favorite day trip destinations in southeast Minnesota.

  2. My favorite place to stop along highway 61 is Tettegouche State Park. I love to hike there, and the views are amazing!

  3. Highway 61 should be viewed as one whole journey, and the stopping off points only as highlights of the totality of the trip. All of those stops are key to keeping this stretch of road as one everyone should take many times in their life.
