Mankato on the Radio

Today we had Christine Nesser from Greater Mankato on Travel Times. She talked about what there is going on in Mankato while we’re at the conference. We had some issues at the beginning of the episode, but we finally got out of the voice mail loop.

Find walking tours and more information:

She also mentions these two books.

  1. Sarah – Thank you so much for having me on your show! We are so excited for Laurapalooza to come to Mankato! We really are still the “Big City” in Southern Minnesota and Northern Iowa. Conference goers can visit the Greater Mankato Convention & Visitors Bureau if they have any questions about what Mankato has to offer!
