At the convergence of the Minnesota and Mississippi rivers, you'll find the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Both cities offer an assortment of destinations worth visiting once you’ve landed at Minneapolis-St Paul International/Wold-Chamberlain Airport (MSP).
The Hiawatha light rail line at the airport will take you directly to the Mall of America if you want to do a little shopping before picking up your rental car.
From Downtown Minneapolis, it's only a short drive to Gold Medal Park on 2nd Street, or Walker Art Center, which ranks among the top modern art museums in the country. If you want some fresh air, take a leisurely tour of the Minneapolis Riverfront, and if St. Paul is your starting point, consider a drive to the engaging Minnesota Children's Museum, or a visit to the Wabasha Street Caves.
The flight from John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to MSP will take about three hours from gate-to-gate. Day trips to consider in the area include William O'Brien State Park, about 50 miles east of the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, and Fort Snelling.
For outdoor adventures in the warmer months, hit up Iron Range or North Shore, both are located approximately three hours from the Twin Cities, in Northeastern Minnesota.
