Yay for your visit! Nothing shameful in the Millenium tour!

I think a bunch of locals are out of town at the moment but I can meet up with you sometime during the day on Sunday. There are food trucks and a flea market near the Hornstull subway stop on Saturdays and Sundays. I could meet up with you there on Sunday, if you like.

Other things that might be fun include one of the free Old Town tours (the guide is tipped). I recently took my grandson to the History Museum, which has Viking-related activities in the center courtyard that include bread baking and archery. The museum is free. I thought the bread baking and archery and other things were fun even as an adult. There's a gold room and other Viking artefacts I plan to go back and see.

I hope you will have your swim suits with you because it will probably be hot. There's a swimming spot near the Hornstull Strand flea market and swimming spots all over the city. Finally, my visitors have all enjoyed taking one of the Stockholm boat tours. I enjoyed the Bridges cruise and apparently there's also a hop-on hop-off boat as well.

There are 14 islands so you probably can't see it all while you are here but I recommend seeing Old Town and Söder for sure. I have been hoping to find someone to go to the ABBA museum with me but it doesn't have to be you all. I will MeMail you my phone number if you want to text or call.

Oops, forgot to mean Skansen, the world's oldest open-air museum, which is pretty great. I cannot vouch for everything on this list but now I want to work my way through all the things I haven't yet seen.

Great mini meet-up for the almost 20 yr anniversary of the blue

Finishing up in the ICEbar which runs year round here.... a welcomed break from 34 degree temps!

That was one 20th anniversary celebration. The official Stockholm MetaFilter meet up celebration will be August 19th. I just need to, um, post it.
