The Twin Cities (Minneapolis and St. Paul) offer a great mix of food, activities, and 

What Minnesota is really known for are the lakes! There are many around the Twin Cities, but some of the best are up north. Three hours from Minneapolis is Duluth - a city nestled along Lake Superior with lots of hills. A classic lake area is Brainerd (2.5 hours) or Bemidji (4 hours). If you have the chance, I would look for a resort hotel or Airbnb in these areas to get out of the city and enjoy the lake.

St. Louis Park/Uptown

This is a much younger area of the Twin Cities. After college, many graduates move to apartments in the area. The area has two main lakes - Bde Maka Ska and Lake Harriet - that offer great walking trails, many restaurants, and some public beaches. There aren't as many hotel options in the direct lake area, but it is accessible by cars from nearby locations. There are parking lots and street parking scattered around the area.

Just a girl from Minnesota who loves to get away... I love to research cities that I am going to and create a detailed itinerary for the trip. I have gone on trips with friends and family, as well as a few solo ventures. All three ways of travel have their own benefits -- and I love to document it all. My collection of guides includes places I have gone within the last few years. I include anything that I would recommend to others or would do again myself. I am excited to share my travel ideas and be able to refer back to my own guides in the future : ) Happy travels! I can't wait for my next adventure too...
