Lisa Meyers McClintick has gone caving, paddled with belugas, unearthed dinosaur bones and biked through Badlands in her quest for fresh adventures, often with her family of three kids. She wrote "Day Trips from Twin Cities" and “The Dakotas Off the Beaten Path" (both Globe-Pequot guidebooks) and is currently working on a Mall of America guidebook for 2015.
