New Explore Minnesota Commercial Features 4 Rochester Locations
I had to do a double-take the other day when I saw a video about Minnesota and all the amazing ways we can explore it. Basically, it was a commercial for the land of 10,000 lakes. We know our lakes are awesome and the Northern shoreline is breathtaking but I did a double-take because front and center in the video were a few popular spots in Southeast Minnesota.
Four Popular Spots in Rochester, Minnesota Featured in Latest Minnesota Commerical
I had a proud mom moment this morning as I saw, front and center, my town featured not just once, but 4 times in a commercial showcasing Minnesota. Yes, Rochester gets some of the "favorite child" type of recognition in the state because of Mayo Clinic but there is a lot more going on in this area than just scrubs and great medical care. In fact, the latest commercial made by Explore Minnesota is showing off some of those "other" parts of the Rochester community.
It's really cool because not just one but FOUR spots in Rochester are front and center in the latest Explore Minnesota commercial including the following:
- One of Rochester's newer downtown restaurants that features an amazing patio, delicious Thai food, and specialty cocktails that many in the Med City seem to love.
- This historic hotel was built in 1921 and was established as an upscale hotel but also had floors for Mayo Clinic Hospital. According to their website, The Kahler Grand Hotel has a proud legacy and "is all about making every guest experience memorable". They have been hosts to many dignitaries including several United States Presidents.

What other parts of Rochester do you think the commercial should have featured?
Personally, I think it would have been amazing if one of our local breweries was featured. We have quite a few and they are all so unique - from the penny tables at Forager to the fun food trucks and outdoor games that are available at several of the other spots.
