Minneapolis Holidays Overview


Minneapolis, one of the two cities (the other being Saint Paul) that make up the Twin Cities, is known to be identically twinned to Saint Paul. It is known to be one of the best places to live in, and is particularly famous for its level of cleanliness, low crime rates and cultural activity. The city centre of Minneapolis might be separated from the city centre of Saint Paul by a 20 minute expressway, but each city is known to boast of its own strengths, character and styles.

Minneapolis was founded upon the income generated from its flour and saw mills and is popularly known to be the livelier of the two cities. It also features an upbeat attitude and more up-to-date attractions than Saint Paul has to offer. Moreover, the city is spread over a wider area and is home to dozens of enchanting lakes and beautiful parklands that multiply its charm and appeal. The gleaming skyscrapers and glittering skyline add to the city’s character and there is always known to be a unique activity and a festival for every season.

Art lovers cannot miss out on the chance of visiting the Walker Art Center, the Frederick R Weisman Art Museum or the Minneapolis Art Institute. Nature lovers cannot ignore the natural beauty offered by any one of the 22 lakes that combine to form up the City of Lakes. Shopaholics are known to spend hours at the iconic Mall of America that offers exciting shopping, drinking and dining activities for people of all ages and tastes. Furthermore, Minneapolis also boasts of a magnificent culture, characteristic neighbourhoods, a thriving nightlife and an excellent theatre scene.

So whether you explore one of the many attractions that the city has to offer, take part in the adventure activities, see a Broadway show or enjoy a live jazz concert, you are bound to fall in love with the sights and sounds of Minneapolis.

1. St Paul Winter Carnival

From 2007-01-26

To 2007-02-04
 

What is it? Back in 1886 a New York journalist described St Paul as being 'unfit for human habitation in the winter'. Locals were not going to take this insult lying down and decided to turn the snowiest spot in the States into a winter wonderland. Since then the tradition of building an ice palace - nowadays a spectacular walk-through castle of ice - has become entrenched, along with the huge party that goes along with it. Each year the crowning of King Boreas and the Queen of Snows heralds the start of three weeks of frozen fun with events like ice sculpture contests and a torchlight parade. Where is it? Cleveland Circle, opposite the Xcel Energy Center

To 2007-05-07
