We are excited to bring the Annual CSET 2020 Meeting to Minnesota! The greater St. Paul-Minneapolis region, also known as the Twin Cities, is a richly diverse area with a dramatic riverfront skyline, picturesque lakes, and one of the best park systems in the nation. Revel in the natural beauty of dozens of trails, parks, and waterways, such as the Chain of Lakes or Minnehaha Falls. Visit the Stone Arch Bridge where you will get a breathtaking view of the Mississippi River and Minneapolis skyline. Catch a Minnesota Twins game at Target Field – they’re home all weekend hosting the Seattle Mariners and Boston Red Sox! Expert tip: Sit along the third baseline for a great view of the field and city skyline. Shop ‘til you drop at local boutiques in Uptown or Northeast Minneapolis, the Nicollet Mall, or the nation’s biggest shopping center – the Mall of America! Peruse the windows, grab lunch, catch a movie or check out Nickelodeon Universe amusement park. The MOA has it all! Expert tip: Minnesota doesn’t have sales tax on clothing!
From its nationally recognized names to small independent venues, The Twin Cities is known for its vibrant and thriving arts scene. Spend time exploring the outdoor sculpture garden at the Walker Art Center, where you’ll find the unofficial icon of the city – The Spoonbridge and Cherry sculpture. Visit the world-renowned Guthrie Theater. Even if you don’t catch a play there, it’s worth seeing the complex’s unique design and Mississippi River views. Check out the Weisman Art Museum on the University of Minnesota campus. There, you will find a diverse collection of contemporary art housed in a striking stainless steel and brick building that was designed by the world-famous architect, Frank Gehry. If live music is your thing, head to First Avenue and Seventh Street Entry, the focal point of the Twin Cities’ music scene and bustling nightlife. Minneapolis native, Prince, featured the club in his movie Purple Rain. And while we are on the topic of Prince – head to Paisley Park in Chanhassen, MN for a tour of the iconic recording artist’s creative sanctuary.
Known as one of the top food regions in-country, Minnesota’s Twin Cities are forging a new identity that celebrates its Nordic past while embracing its multicultural present. A culture committed to perfecting the craft of the brew and a foodie paradise where you can get a hearty Nordic breakfast, Ethiopian cuisine for lunch, and this thing called a “Juicy Lucy” for dinner - cue Matt’s Bar, The Nook and 5-8 Club. And oh yeah, let’s not forget cocktails on a Ferris Wheel – thanks Betty Danger’s! On the weekends we brunch - a topic we Twin Citizens do not take lightly! Check out these downtown Minneapolis local favorites – Hen House, Hell’s Kitchen and Key’s Café. You’re sure to find something that tickles your taste buds!
Need more ideas of places to see and things to do? Just ask the friendly Twin Citizen locals. We are happy to provide recommendations! After all, we are Minnesota-nice.
