Some entertainment hotspots just outside the metro are joining together to promote the southwest Twin Cities.
Riversouth, The Land of Big Fun is the collaboration of several areas including Canterbury Park, Mystic Lake Casino Hotel and Valleyfair.
On its website, which just launched Wednesday morning, Riversouth features different events and news happening specifically in the southwest metro.
Dave Frazier, the GM of Valleyfair, said the collaboration has been in the works for a few months.
He said the goal is to attract more visitors for more frequent and longer stays.
