A modern city known for shopping, sports, theater, music, great food and brew – plus lakes and rivers perfect for outdoor activities.
Fondly known as the “Twin Cities”, Minneapolis, the largest city in Minnesota, and Saint Paul, the state capital, offer award-winning dining and a booming microbrew scene alongside stunning natural beauty. As home to the Minnesota Wild hockey team, Minnesota Twins baseball team, and Minnesota Vikings football team, pro sports are always in season.
At the Mall of America in nearby Bloomington, take advantage of Minnesota’s tax-free shopping on clothes and shoes. Minneapolis has the second-most live theaters per capita, after NYC. Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy hiking, biking, and kayaking on the Chain of Lakes. Those who like it warmer can stroll the 18 miles of indoor walkway called the “Skyway” that connects downtown Minneapolis’ buildings. Families enjoy kid-friendly attractions such as the Sea Life Aquarium, Crayola Experience, the Children’s Museum and more.
