River Falls Lodging for Kansas City Cheifs summer training camp
Being from Denver, and of course being Broncos fans, the Chiefs are a big rival. We do think it is pretty cool though that our bed and breakfast is so close to River Falls which is where the Kansas City Chiefs are having their 2008 summer training camp. Being only 15 to 20 minutes from River Falls makes us the perfect choice for lodging close to all of the action. Why not wake up to our four course breakfast and then head out for a day in the sun and football. Then return for snacks and a nice cold beverage on one of our nicely shaded patios. Wake up the next day and do it all over again.
If you mention that you read this blog we will even give you chips and John's homemade salsa to enjoy along with that ice cold beverage.
