The iconic Foshay Tower, downtown Minneapolis, MN provided a fun—and informative Travel Date. The 31st floor observation deck provided breathtaking views over the city. I learned that John Philips Sousa wrote a lively march for its opening gala! I discovered that my favorite George Washington sculpture at the Mia sat in the original lobby! And…my great uncle helped build it! More fun facts and great photos are on my blog.
