Visit Minneapolis/St. Paul.

With its wide waters coursing and winding through them, the roaring Mississippi River makes something of a yin and yang out of Minnesota’s Twin Cities—a fitting image for these neighbors. St. Paul, Minnesota’s capital, is something of the stately older sibling of the pair; while Minneapolis might be considered its wilder, care-free counterpart. Make no mistake, however: Both of these cities offer more than their fair share of fun, and both are easily within reach when you fly into Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport on Southwest®.

Start your visit in Minneapolis, the closer to the airport of the two, and marvel at how the former industrial powerhouse has converted its factories and warehouses into a bustling urban playground filled with trendy boutiques, craft breweries, and polite Minnesotans. Foodies will find it easy to get their fill from a veritable smorgasbord of culinary hotspots to enjoy. With its deep Scandinavian roots, visitors might delight in an actual smorgasbord, while South Minneapolis’s Eat Street offers a world tour of flavors.

Music fans of all stripes would do well to see who’s playing while in town. This music-loving city, home to a huge number of venues that draw headliners from around the world, has also produced a number of world-famous acts itself over the years—you might just catch an up-and-comer before they hit the big time. Meanwhile, connoisseurs and even casual admirers of the visual arts will be spoiled by the city’s lineup of museums. Enjoy free admission to the Minneapolis Institute of Art, the city’s largest art museum, whose immense collection tops a whopping 100,000 objects. Those interested in the most recent art-world innovations can do no better than the Walker Art Center, one of the five largest modern art museums in the country.

Down and around the bend, St. Paul might offer a slightly more subdued experience in some respects, but there’s certainly still much to appreciate. Stop off at the city’s gorgeous State Capitol for a full tour of its spacious interior during the daytime, or swing by to take in the view of its exterior under the surrounding spotlights at night. Just down the road, you can find the famous Como Zoo and Conservatory. Seated at the edge of Como Lake, which strives toward the beauty (if not the size) of its Italian namesake, this sprawling complex features the zoo, conservatory, and a full amusement park—not to mention a golf course, pool, and that scenic lakefront.

Take in one of these cities—or both—and get there with ease by booking a flight into the conveniently located Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport. Browse affordable flight options and enjoy a simple process from flight selection to booking. Learn more about the Southwest® Experience and start planning your next trip.
