MALL OF THE AMERICAS: If you...
Favorite thing: MALL OF THE AMERICAS: If you are a SHOPPER, and I am that, this is a place for you. My advice take a cab, trying to find parking and then trying to find your parking space after a day spent in this place is not all that much fun.
***Yes it is only a mall, but it has everything and anything and if you are a true blue shopper you will truly regret not stopping by***
I really wouldn't be able to...
Favorite thing: I really wouldn't be able to name just one thing when it comes to showing someone about the Twin Cities. There is so many events that are over here all year around. There is alot of different varieties of things to do here.
Fondest memory: Well...the one thing that I sure haven't miss when I am away from Minnesota is the winters. Other than that, it is just that I know so much around this place, so I miss being around the things that I know so much and the people that I know.
Most of the most beneficial...
Favorite thing: Most of the most beneficial information on the Twin Cities is on my Minneapolis page. Why? Well, because for the locals, Minneapolis & St. Paul are really one big city. That's why it's known as the Twin Cities. The Mississippi River divides the city with Minneapolis on the west side and St. Paul to the east.
Fondest memory: This picture was shot from the state Capitol building in St. Paul and, as you can see, Minneapolis is just across the river in the distance.
Go to the new Science Museum. ...
Favorite thing: Go to the new Science Museum. Walk along the riverfront. Visit the state capitol. Go to the Mall of America. Take a ride around the Minneapolis parkways and the St. Paul parkways.
Fondest memory: Biking the 'grand round' of St. Paul parkways.
The Wide Mississippi
Favorite thing: Good views of the Mississippi from Kellogg Mall in downtown St. Paul. The gentle sweep of the river reminds me of the Danube!
Peace Officers Memorial
Favorite thing: Dedicated in 1995, designed by Fred Richter. Honors law enforcement personnel who are killed in the line of duty.
On the grounds of the state capitol.
Minnesota Judicial Building
Favorite thing: Across from the State Capitol, on Constitution Avenue. Built in 1916, this was originally home of the Minnesota Historical Society.
go_doggo's General Tip
Fondest memory: Take a drive or walk along Summit Ave to view all of the gorgeous mansions. This is a picture of the governor's mansion and it is NOT the best in the area...
