Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Minneapolis is a vibrant city with a deeply rooted love for music, food, and the outdoors. Known for their “Minnesota nice” attitudes, the people of Minneapolis tend to be friendlier than your average city dweller. For arts and entertainment, there is much to do in Minneapolis. The iconic First Avenue in downtown was the birthplace of the Minneapolis sound, made famous by Prince who first graced its stage in 1981.

Before it was a Museum, it was a mill owned by General Mills which experienced not one but two massive explosions during its storied history. The city has tons of walking paths that follow the banks of the Mississippi all throughout the Twin Cities.

For food, ‘Eat Street’ or Nicollet Avenue has tons of award-winning and affordable dining options that highlight the city’s diversity.
