Minneapolis straddles the Mississippi River, adjacent to the state capital, Saint Paul. Combined, the “Twin Cities” make up the 16th largest metropolitan area in the US. In every way this is a “big league” city, with cultural institutions that include the Minnesota Twins (at Target Field), the Minnesota Vikings (at US Bank Stadium), Minnesota Orchestra Hall and the University of Minnesota.

Air service to the Twin Cities is provided by Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport. Driving distances to the closest major cities:

  • Milwaukee: 337 miles
  • Fargo: 235 miles
  • Des Moines: 244 miles
