I absolutely loved two girls from southern China who are seniors at Emory University in Atlanta. When they have a few days off, they visit whatever US cities had the cheapest plane fares and Airbnb rooms that week. On the coldest days of January -- airfare to Minneapolis was really cheap! They were really excited to experience 20 degrees below zero, and came with a full itinerary of tourist experiences they'd researched on the Internet. They went to museums, shows, restaurants, and shopping (lots of shopping). AND they spent more time outside than natives! They walked around the Chain of Lakes. They crossed the Stone Arch Bridge. They even insisted on trekking in to see the frozen Minihaha Falls. One wanted to try ice fishing, but she didn't give me enough notice to arrange it!
