Seekers of retail therapy can tell you why they visit Minneapolis in three words: Mall of America. Not only is MOA one of the world's most popular tourist destinations, it's also home to Nickelodeon Universe, the country's biggest indoor theme park. This must-visit destination is in Bloomington, about 15 minutes from downtown.
A massive mall isn’t the only place to spend your savings on a cheap vacation in Minneapolis. No, wise wanderer, you can also quench your creative thirst and savor the great outdoors during your time in either of the Twin Cities. Check out the Walker Art Gallery and Minneapolis Institute of Art, and then explore the mysteries of the universe at the Science Museum of Minnesota. Make sure you view the skyline from the unique vantage point of a glass skyway; Minneapolis has more than 7 miles of them. They're a great way to get around during bone-chilling winter months, plus they house all manner of attractions, year-round. Finally, you can't visit "The City of Lakes" without dipping your toes in a body of fresh water or going ice fishing. Lake Harriet, Lake Calhoun, and Lake Nokomis are local favorites.
Festivals and Events
Minneapolis package deals can deliver you to the Twin Cities just in time for your favorite festival. Consider showing up during the Minnesota State Fair, the largest state fair in the country. For two glorious weeks in late summer, you can binge on fried foods and ride carnival attractions or see live music. Another big draw is the Twin Cities Pride festival and parade, usually held in late June. Foodies will love the authentic cuisine and entertainment of the St. George Greek Festival in September.
