Legend has it the town of Mantorville is haunted. There are actually a few ghost tours that you can take. You can find out all about the ghosts that have been haunting this neck of Minnesota here. I guess I'm not cut out to investigate paranormal activity because I didn't find any ghosts, but I am really good at locating good chocolate... and I found some of the best in Mantorville.

Chocolate Shoppe in Mantorville is located on the main road and they've been making hand-dipped chocolates since 1976. They know a thing or two about chocolates.  They've got a huge selection of candies, including light and dark chocolate, sugar-free, gluten-free, and they even have ice cream!  This chocolate shop was named as one of the "8 Places in Southeast Minnesota All Chocolate Lovers Should Visit".

This would be a good weekend to treat yourself to some delicious chocolate. The city of Mantorville is celebrating being "Open for Business" between July 10th and 12th and there are several fun activities and deals.
