There’s no better time to visit Minneapolis-St. Paul than

Gus Beringer

“Drinks and the driving range at Top Golf.”

Fadumo Mohamed

Tom Hutchinson

“Schedule a tour of Prince’s Paisley Park or check out who’s playing at Minneapolis’ iconic First Avenue.”

Andrea Bell

“Get fish and chips from Sea Salt Eatery and explore Minnehaha Falls.”

Kyle Phillips

“Enjoy a 3-ish mile walk or run around Lake Harriet. Make sure you begin near the bandshell so you can grab food and a drink at Bread and Pickle towards the beginning or end of your outing!”
