Known for its long, snowy winters and small-town feel during festivals and town gatherings, Minneapolis and St. Paul, the two largest cities in Minnesota, surpass everyone's expectations when they come to visit. Whether your preference is seeing the Twins or the Vikings compete; playing a game of golf yourself; shopping at the Mall of America; or taking in a Minnesota Orchestra performance at Orchestra Hall, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Not only do both Minneapolis and St. Paul pride themselves on being cities of culture that support the arts, they also embrace the history and outdoor activities that have been a part of their identity from past to present.
Visit Indian Mounds Park to relive St. Paul's history, or learn about the history of Minneapolis at Minnehaha Park. The wide variety of offerings in the Hennepin Theater district in Minneapolis - home of the State Theatre, the Orpheum Theatre, Pantages Theatre, and Hennepin Stages - and at Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul prove that residents of these two cities know how to create a thriving arts scene. When all is said and done there is no room for disappointment in these fabulously culture rich cities!
