So you’re going to plan a Twin Cities vacation. As a local, I’m divulging my best tips for your stay. And there’s even a really exciting giveaway involved with Country Inn & Suites. Are you in?
Where to Stay
The post sponsor’s Minneapolis West location in Plymouth which is nicely situated just west of Minneapolis. It’s a quick drive downtown, but it’s also even closer to the beautiful Lake Minnetonka, which picturesque in any season but especially summer. You might end up spending some quality time in the hotel though since it has an outdoor fireplace patio, indoor pool and other amenities.
Things to Do
The Lake Minnetonka area has been a premiere tourist destination since the 1800s. See downtown Wayzata’s Lake Street for shopping, ice cream, boat tours and stand up paddle board rentals.
In Minneapolis, you have to check out the Stonearch Bridge, St. Anthony Main and Boom Island Park–three of my absolute favorite places.
Where to Eat
My favorite hotel amenity? Free breakfast! It’s such a time saver while traveling, leaving more precious time for sightseeing. Keep reading to see a photo of the Country Inn & Suites breakfast room, it’ll make you hungry for waffles.
If you eat breakfast at the hotel, you’ll only need to find lunch and dinner. My out of town guests have enjoyed Brasa in Minneapolis and St. Paul and Hell’s Kitchen in downtown Minneapolis. For a sweet treat during your Twin Cities vacation, check out Amy’s Cupcake Shoppe in Hopkins.
