Dining on the patio in the River Valley area
Summer is short enough in the upper Midwest. Why then, when you go out to eat during the summer, should you sit inside? That question has been answered in recent years by many area restaurants -- you shouldn't have to.
Patio dining has come on strong lately, and why not? Many restaurants in area communities are set in scenic areas, along rivers, near lakes and in charming downtowns.
