6. Double the Fun 

St. Paul Minnesota

The Twin Cities (Minneapolis and St. Paul) are two very different experiences, offering a family days and days of entertainment and adventure. What else to say than it’s double the fun? Some of the best museums, art and music scenes, and family fun adventures can be found within just a few minutes of the area. Take in a game, see a show or a concert, shop ‘til you drop, swim and splash and slide, hike, and bike. (In 2010, Minneapolis was voted the #1 most Bike-Friendly City by Bicycling magazine, only dropping slightly to #2 in 2012.) Take the city by storm on a bike, since nearly everything is accessible from the seat of a bike rented from Nice Ride. (Kiosks which can be found in many parts of the metro during the warmer months.) Stay at the Depot Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel where you can skate and swim while getting rest in a hotel that is as cozy as home! Simply sit back and indulge in some fine cuisine and relax as you take in the big city life.

Check out these fun ideas for itineraries in both Minneapolis and St. Paul for your next family adventure!
