St. Paul is the capital of Minnesota and one of the oldest cities in the entire state. The city, once home to a thriving economy based around mills and breweries, is located on the banks of the mighty Mississippi river. The city has a rich history, which is why it is no wonder that St. Paul is full of historical buildings that reflect its storied past. Popular historical locations in the city include the James J. Hill House, built by the noted railroad magnate, and the F. Scott Fitzgerald House, which was built by the famed author who lived in St. Paul. The Cathedral of St. Paul and the Capitol Building also offer tours that showcase the unique architecture of the buildings and their role in Minnesota’s history.

St. Paul’s location on the Mississippi River means that the city is filled with scenic trails and parks that can be enjoyed all season round. There are also a number of waterfalls throughout the city, including the Minnehaha Falls and the aptly named Hidden Falls. During the winter months, local residents enjoy snowshoeing and Nordic skiing throughout the parks and along the banks of the river.

One of the most popular destinations in St. Paul (especially among grandkids) is the Science Museum of Minnesota. This nationally recognized museum was founded in 1907 and is home to a large collection of dinosaur fossils, a human body gallery, and an Imax theater. After the museum you can catch a Minnesota Wild hockey game at the Xcel Energy Center, which is located next door. Hockey is by far the most popular sport in the state, and every year thousands of hockey fans fill the arena to capacity for the State Highschool Hockey Championships.

Transportation

St. Paul is connected to the greater Twin Cities metropolitan area by Metro Transit, which operates bus and light rail lines throughout St. Paul, Minneapolis, and the surrounding suburbs. Riders can easily travel from downtown St. Paul to MSP international airport or the Mall of America. The Twin Cities are also nationally recognized for being extremely bike-friendly. The Greenway bike trail connects the entire metro area, providing convenient access to nearly anywhere in the Twin Cities by bicycle.
