Explore Minneapolis/St. Paul

While the Minneapolis/St. Paul area is known as the Twin Cities, both Minneapolis and St. Paul are uniquely enriching destinations with plenty to see and do. Whether the purpose of your trip is business or vacation, you’ll discover a hotbed of culture, art, history, and fun within this major metropolitan area.

Downtown Minneapolis is just 11 minutes from the airport; the fastest and most cost-effective way to get there is the Metro Transit’s Blue Line. Hop on and settle in for a leisurely ride. Upon your arrival, there are numerous cultural attractions to explore. Catch a show at the legendary Guthrie Theater, known for a variety of performances from classical to experimental theater. Peruse the bookshelves of the Minneapolis Central Library, Hennepin County’s largest library, with almost 2.5 million books, DVDs, music, and government documents. Architecture buffs will love a stroll or bike ride across the Stone Arch Bridge, the only one of its kind to have ever crossed the Mississippi River. Minneapolis is also home to the famous Mall of America, the largest American mall by floor space, with its own theme park and aquarium. Take a 20-minute drive south to Bloomington and experience it for yourself.

When you’re ready to visit the other Twin, take Metro Transit east about 12 miles and you’ll arrive in Minnesota’s capital, St. Paul. While not as trendy as Minneapolis, St. Paul is home to equally interesting attractions. Get an interactive look at the world around us at the Science Museum of Minnesota. Take a tour of Fort Snelling, a historic military garrison built in 1819, and witness a live canon demonstration. Visit the monumental Cathedral of St. Paul, dedicated to Paul the Apostle—also the namesake of the city.
