GETTING HERE 

Minneapolis - St. Paul International Airport

 

Voted "Best Airport in America," the Minneapolis - St. Paul International Airport (MSP) is a centrally-located travel hub revered for its ease of check-in, security, and amenities.

 

Sixteen commercial passenger airlines service MSP; 11 are located at Terminal 1 - Lindbergh and five are located at Terminal 2 - Humphrey.

GETTING AROUND 

Metro Transit offers fast, frequent service to both downtowns, Mall of America and hundreds of other popular attractions. For an extremely efficient way to travel, zoom around town on the METRO Blue and Green lines, the Twin Cities light-rail transit (LRT) service. The METRO Blue Line connects downtown Minneapolis with the airport and Mall of America, and the METRO Green Line connects downtown Minneapolis, the University of Minnesota and downtown St. Paul.

WHERE TO STAY

Downtown Minneapolis

 

Minneapolis is a city that blends urban sophistication with the natural beauty of lakes, trails, and parks. It offers all the benefits of a thriving metropolis with new stadiums, breweries, and James Beard Award-winning restaurants all within an easy to navigate, safe, friendly and compact downtown. There’s a reason The Huffington Post put us on its list of America’s Top Five Cities to Keep on Your Radar, stating that ‘Minneapolis is the new…everything.’”

Downtown St. Paul

 

Saint Paul is the capital city of the headwaters state of the Mississippi River, the most iconic river in the United States, and there are numerous ways for you to connect with it while you’re in town. With dozens of parks, trails and green space including the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area, a national park site that boasts 72 miles of public riverfront. We’re especially fond of our architecture, including the longest stretch of preserved Victorian architecture in the United States on Summit Avenue and the Cass Gilbert-designed Minnesota State Capitol (which touts the second largest unsupported marble dome in the world).
