In the Land of 10,000 Lakes, not to mention the mighty Mississippi River, you’re never very far from nature – even in the heart of the Twin Cities. Miles of walking and biking trails, parks and golf courses are dotted throughout the metro. In the winter, cross-country ski trails, snowboarding and downhill skiing at one of five nearby hills, ice skating and hockey rinks will lure you outside. Summer or winter, you’ll find plenty of ways to enjoy the great outdoors.
If you’re into the arts and entertainment scene it’s all here, with dozens of outstanding museums and theatres (check out special student prices). In fact, the Twin Cities have more theatre seats per capita than any other metropolitan area outside of New York City.
Music? You name it, you can find it with hundreds of music cafes, clubs and major concert venues that call the Twin Cities home.
Sports? Hometown fans find no shortage of teams to follow with professional football, men’s and women’s basketball, hockey, baseball and even lacrosse. For a unique outing be sure to check out the semi-pro Saint Paul Saints during their summer season.
