Minneapolis Institute of Arts

The Minneapolis Institute of Arts boasts an impressive selection of Impressionist paintings. Originally constructed in 1915, the Institute has been amazing gallery-goers with its substantial collection of over 85,000 pieces of American and European artists' works for roughly a century. Works on display here range from those by such legends as Matisse and Kandinsky to Picasso and Rodin. In addition to American and European paintings, there is also an excellent Asian collection. With free admission, there is no excuse not to check it out.

Lake of the Isles

In 1880 Lake of the Isles was a stagnant marsh. Dredging of the swamp raised the property value surrounding the pond. Some of the city's largest and most elegant homes frame Lake of the Isles.This man-made lake is well stocked with pan fish, attracting anglers of all ages in the warm months as well as the cold. Swimming is not advised, but the setting is delightful for sunbathing, a picnic or reading a book under a large shade tree. In winter, park officials designate skating areas and erect a warming house. Walking, jogging or biking around its 2.7 miles of shoreline provides outstanding views of the downtown and the surrounding neighborhood. The serene atmosphere of Lake of the Isles makes it the lake of choice for canoeists.The southern portion of the lake is connected to the city's largest lake, Lake Calhoun, by a quiet channel. Contact the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board for additional information about the city lakes.

Cathedral of St Paul

One of the country's largest and most spectacular churches, the Cathedral of St. Paul sits high on a hill (aptly known as Cathedral Hill) overlooking downtown and the Mississippi River Valley. The structure opened in 1915, although extensive interior work continued for several more years. The massive copper dome is 300 feet above the nave's floor and the walls are covered in pale Minnesota granite. A pair of carillon towers flanks the building's Summit Avenue façade and the sanctuary seats 3000 worshipers. Guided tours are offered on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 1p.

Target Field

Target Field is the home turf of the Minnesota Twins. Equipped with amenities like mobile seat upgrades, predictive gaming, free WiFi and mobile tickets, it is a popular venue for sports fans. Seating a whopping 40,000, this baseball field offers a good view of the game from all seats. Special stadium tours are organized for visitors. Concerts are also held here.

Orpheum Theatre

The Orpheum Theatre opened in 1921 as a vaudeville house and then converted to a movie house. Thereafter, it fell into a state of disrepair due to competition from multi-screen, suburban theaters. The theater was renovated in 1994 and since then the Orpheum has hosted numerous Broadway musicals including world premieres such as "Victor/Victoria" and "The Lion King." Relax as you watch a musical or chill out at a concert here. You can also join your academically inclined friends for a lecture held in the theater. Regardless of the reason you visit this place, you will love the regal theater with a seating capacity of 2579. The Orpheum is part of the Hennepin Theatre Trust.

Minnesota State Capitol

The State Capitol, considered by many to be one of the nation's most beautiful, is a spectacular structure designed by local architect Cass Gilbert. Opened in 1905, it took six years to be built, and cost USD4 million. The building, modeled after St. Peter's in Rome, features a stunning 220-foot (67-meter) marble dome and an extravagantly detailed interior. Built on a hill overlooking St. Paul, the top of the front steps yields a breathtaking view of downtown. Sheltering Minnesota Senate, Minnesota House of Representatives and the offices of the Attorney General and the Governor, the capitol harbors opulent chamber rooms and elaborate murals, while the glorious, gilded chariot lodged at the entrance presides over the area's landscape. A striking canopy of pride and poignancy, the Minnesota State Capitol is the crowning glory of Saint Paul.
