Episode 513: Shot in Summer 2015, first aired in April 2016

When we anticipated coming to Hudson, we expected to experience a suburb of St. Paul, MN. But we had it completely backwards. Since everyone wants to live in Hudson, Minnesota built a city so that people from Hudson could just go across the river to work, right? But not all of the work is in MN. John would work at Laser Magic, Empire Bucket, Plantables, and Ciranda — all at the same time, if he could.

There’s art to be made and buy, food to be created and eaten (that’s the part John likes), and there are patios to sit on, beer caves to be explored and company to be enjoyed.

Really, the character and reality here make Hudson typical of and unique to Wisconsin. A lot of the license plates may say Minnesota, but Hudson’s heart says Wisconsin!
