Get to Know the Twin Cities
Boston is the genesis of our nation.
Fall harvests in Minnesota mean bountiful troves of homegrown, organic foods. Savor the tastes of fall, as the ingredients used to make your favorite cuisine are a direct reflection of the thriving farmers markets throughout the city.
Festivals wind through the Twin Cities, and activities like kayaking the Mississippi River and renting Nice Ride bikes to explore the natural scenery let you get up close and personal with some of the most captivating fall scenes in the nation.
Speaking of scenes, the sports scene roars to life as the football season gets underway for both the Minnesota Golden Gophers at TCF Bank Stadium and the Minnesota Vikings at a brand new complex set to open for the 2016 NFL season (it will also be the host site for the 2018 Super Bowl). A few blocks away, the Minnesota Twins wind down their season at beautiful Target Field while over in St. Paul the Minnesota Wild face off at the Xcel Energy Center.
Let us show you why Minnesota's capital city is the perfect place for your convention. Saint Paul is clean, safe and simple to navigate. Visitors love our walkable downtown area, variety of accommodation options and unique meeting venues. Throughout the city, they’ll encounter service staff and locals who embody something we like to call “Minnesota Nice,” a gracious, welcoming sort of spirit that will make your convention a time to remember.
Saint Paul is known as the “City of Neighborhoods,” each offering a celebration of the city’s long-cherished heritage and diversity. Life in these vibrant neighborhood districts flows deep with tradition, with many of the restaurants and businesses proudly bearing the names of the immigrant families who founded them generations ago.
Craft Beer Capital....Enjoy freshly brewed ales, pilsners, stouts, and more as you learn all about the brewing process at Saint Paul craft breweries. Can one beer change your life? We think so. What started in 1986 with Mark Stutrud and Summit Brewing Company has exploded into a full fledged craft beer craze. The craft beer industry is booming in the Twin Cities right now. Not only are there great options for trying local brews at most restaurants, but you can taste them where they're born at many of our local breweries. So get after it, try them all and let your Beercation journey officially begin. Cheers!
