Best area to stay in Minneapolis
Set in the heart of Minneapolis, Downtown is the best area to stay within the city if you want to have easy access to art, business locations, amazing restaurants and a lively nightlife. You will also be able to experience what it’s like to comfortably explore a city on foot, thanks to its closed pedestrian climate-controlled walkways that connect several buildings, shops, offices, hotels, banks and more.
You can also take a good look around the shops in the Nicollet Mall, ponder the wonders of the Basilica of Saint Mary, and experience some live sport at Target Field (home to the Minnesota Twins) and Target Center (home to the Minnesota Timberwolves). You will also be near to the Minneapolis Convention Center and just one mile from the U.S. Bank Stadium, home to the Minnesota Vikings.
Don´t miss out on a lovely walk along the banks of the Mississippi River, which will take you to the Mill District, a historical area filled with restaurants, amazing parks, impressive views of Saint Anthony Falls, and routes for walking or going on bike rides. If you like theatre, make sure to visit the Orpheum Theatre, The Skyway Theatre, Pantages Theatre, or Brave New Workshop, and for nightlife, we recommend the Dakota Jazz Club.
To get around you can take the area´s revolutionary Hiawatha Light Rail Line, which provides easy and well-connected travel to the MSP International Airport (30 minutes away) and the Mall of America (50 minutes away).
