No one can argue with the Parade of Homes and Remodelers’ Showcase being the biggest home tour, but this weekend’s Minneapolis – St. Paul Home Tour offers great options for city-dwellers to see real people’s remodeled and redecorated homes in their own neighborhoods.
The free, self-guided tour includes 55 homes within the Minneapolis and St. Paul city limits with a focus on the actual homeowners sharing their experiences and ideas. The homes range in eras and lifestyles to offer a realistic look at the diverse housing and neighborhoods in the cities.
Filter the home search online to find homes near you or pick up a guide book at local libraries. (I have six homes within walking distance in my part of Minneapolis alone.) Here’s when you can check it out:
