  • By Bus

    Minneapolis Transportation

    Holiday inn metrodome is right on the busline, easy to get to the Orpheum Theatre, Nicollett Mall, First Avenue Bar (where Prince was discovered). It's a .50 cent ride on the bus as long as your staying in Minneapolis-we didn't know this so paid the $1.75 price as listed on the entrance of the bus, still cheaper than cab fair, and easy to get...

    Eating at the airport is often a last-resort-only option for many travelers but not so in Minneapolis. Sure, you can have McDonald’s but does anyone over the age of 6 really want to? Local and international flavors abound at some of the following: French Meadow Bakery and Cafe: on USA Today’s 10 Best Airport Restaurants list, and offers some...

    Minneapolis Transportation

    Biking is huge here and a great way to explore the Twin Cities on a sunny day. Minneapolis was rated the best biking city in the country by Bicycling Magazine, and we're #2 for percentage of commuters who cycle to work. We have 92 miles of streets with dedicated bike lanes and another 85 miles of off-street paths with more being developed every...

    Minneapolis Transportation

    If you have to be stuck anywhere in the U.S. for a delayed or cancelled flight, this is the place. Travel + Leisure readers voted it the "cheeriest and most welcoming airport in the nation” in 2012 with high marks for cleanliness, design, amenities, ease of check-in and security. This is the largest port in a six-state area, the 17th busiest in the...

    The Twin Cities are much like Winnipeg in one aspect - it is absolutely necessary to have an automobile to get around. As I mentioned previously, the metropolitain Twin Cities area is made up of many cities - which is confusing (expecially when trying to reserve a hotel room from Winnipeg). We stayed in South St. Paul. Even to eat, we had to travel...

    The twin cities don't have a subway -- but soon [the sign says "in 2004"], they will have a new tram system. This is the sign at the construction for the Nicollet Mall station. You can click on the photo to see more detail.

  • Getting to Rochester

    Many people fly into the Minneapolis St. Paul Airport since it is served by the most airlines and many more flights than any other city in Minnesota. When traveling to Rochester, I usually fly from MSP and I've used a shared ride service a number of times - Rochester Direct. They have a desk in the ground transportation area so you don't have to...

  • Hay Ride

    I got the chance to take a hay ride. It was set up for our family by a local farmer. But even nicer than driving around the backroads of Minnesota was experiencing it slowly from a hayride. PS - For someone like me who hasn't grown up in argricultural areas, there are all kinds of "fascinating" odors.

    Northwest Airlines, which is headquartered in Minneapolis, pretty well dominates air travel to and from the Twin Cities, offering many more flights than its competition. That is no good thing. NW's on-board service is miserable, the food almost inedible -- when you even get any -- and the staff is generally surly and singularly unhelpful. NW does...

    There is no doubt about it, once you get to Minnesota, you better rent a car! A car is necessary to get around Minnesota. While they do have buses, they probably won't be as plentiful or frequent as you would like.

    Drive, but take a lunch, there are no food stops on the interstates. This was the most unusual finding we had in Minnesota. Not even a McDonald's along the whole route across the southern part of the state.

    If you're just going to the cities they have a lovely airport and are reachable by amtrak, if you're a train person like me. You might as well not drive if you're just going to the cities, because driving around the cities, like driving in any large city, is not the greatest. If you're going anywhere else in the state, drive!In my humble opinion,...
