Why Minneapolis

Minneapolis is more than cold winters and hotdishes. We have three professional sports stadiums within 1.3 miles, so much art you’re literally surrounded by it and a theater on almost every corner. Boasting at least 14 breweries, you’re sure to find a craft you like, and for dinner, have your pick of Ethiopian, Vietnamese, or the award-winning Hell’s Kitchen.  Come ready to enjoy festivals all year round and all four gorgeous seasons to their fullest. Take a ride to the surrounding 13 lakes, the Mississippi River and a waterfall, right here in the City of Lakes.
