Even if you're committed to sustainability and reducing carbon emissions, once you arrive in Minneapolis from Portland, you will want a car to get around this sprawling metropolis. Those visiting Minneapolis will have many attractions at their disposal, including the Mall of America, Minnesota Zoo and Walker Art Museum, and Outdoor Sculpture Garden featuring the Spoon Bridge and Cherry. Nightlife in downtown Minneapolis is hopping in the Entertainment District, which is packed with restaurants like Broders’ Pasta Bar, live music venues and a movie theater.
To get to downtown Minneapolis, take Interstate 494 West to Interstate 35W and head north to the city. Use a GPS device downloaded to your smartphone, or upgrade your rental to include a navigation system, and then head to the Nicollet Mall. Take time to shop along the mall and in the skyway, then head to the Entertainment District just a few blocks away, or take a walk down the Loring Park Greenway over to the Walker Art Museum and Sculpture Garden.
Flying into Minneapolis Saint Paul International Airport (MSP) from Portland International Airport (PDX) will take just over three hours. Cold or rain will not stop you from enjoying downtown Minneapolis. The Nicollet Mall, Entertainment District and major hotels are linked by an enclosed skyway system that allows you to walk above street level when weather conditions are undesirable.
