Minneapolis, Minnesota

The metro area surrounding the Mississippi River known as the Twin Cities has quietly become one of the country’s best hubs for the arts. There are more theater seats in this metro area per capita than in any U.S. city besides New York, and it also boasts a strong local scene of diverse genres that span from punk to folk to hip-hop. There are numerous venues around the many local colleges, but make sure to see the acts that come through the historic venue 7 Street Entry.

You will also want to check out both the St. Paul Cathedral and the Basilica of St. Mary located in Minneapolis; both were built during the great rivalry these two cities had during the early part of the 20th Century.

And don’t leave the Twin Cities without taking advantage of the many parks and lakes in the region. Being part of both the state and city slogan, the numerous lakes offer tourists plenty of chances to get outside for a day of fishing and boating.
