Minneapolis

Downtown West

Centered around the outstanding shopping and dining of Nicollet Mall (a 12-block stretch of Nicollet Ave., not an enclosed shopping mall), Downtown West is Minneapolis’ city center. The neighborhood is home to towering office buildings and hotels, a delightful mix of shops and restaurants, and also to the nationally recognized Minnesota Orchestra. Seeking a sophisticated night on the town? Check out Hennepin Avenue, which features famous stages like Goodale Theatre, Orpheum Theatre, Pantages Theatre and State Theatre. If you’re looking for an art fix, you’ve come to the right place. The Walker Art Center and Minneapolis Sculpture Gardens are only a couple blocks away from Downtown West. These attractions showcase breathtaking pieces and are definitely worth the short walk to see them.

North Loop

Most (but not all) of this neighborhood’s industrial tenants have moved on, but the warehouses they once occupied are now home to loft apartments, tech and creative firms, art galleries, indie stores, bars, coffee shops and trendy restaurants. Sound a lot like a midwest Brooklyn? We think so too. Exploring this neighborhood on foot is sure to yield some magical finds that are on the verge of becoming extremely popular. Or maybe you’ll consider renting a bike from one of the many local shops. The North Loop has been voted one of the most bike friendly neighborhoods in the US and features some amazing bike trails. No matter your level of experience biking, the North Loop will make you feel like a natural so… “When in Rome” right? (We mean Minneapolis.)

Take your Minneapolis stay from good to "You should have seen the place we stayed!"
