  • Minnesota, where to stay?

    My wife, 2 daughters and me are going to take a few days in Minnesota and do school shopping at the MOA. Where are some nice places to stay, and what else do you recommend besides the mall? Thanks.

    There are nice hotels everywhere in the metro, but if you want to be close to the MOA stay somewhere in Bloomington. I like the south metro area, and Bloomington has some nice hotels.

    Could always go to the Minnesota Zoo. Head uptown in Minneapolis and walk the Lakes with the Mpls skyline in the background. Nightlife is all downtown Minneapolis, but probably not something for the whole family. Walk through the University campus and have a bite to eat. Maple Grove has some good shopping too. Go see a play/concert in Saint Paul or walk around Harriet Island.

    There is so much to do here, its hard to think of everything.

      Yeah I would aviod DT MPLS if you have kids unless you are going to the dome for a game. then take then train from MOA directly there and back. I owuld agree with the MAple Grove and would add stillwater MN as a nice place to walk around. MOA is fine make sure you go during the week if possible that place is packed on weekends. ANd again right on k9 wiht the hotels in bloomington probably not going to find cheaper and safer and as close to the action as the places around 494.

        The Renissance festival starts this weekend...

        AND... I would recommend the Minneapolis INstitute of Arts... ITS AWESOME!... Valley fair for the kids if they like rides... and after 5 pm its half price. I think they are open late. Check on their website. ..I'm dial up.... so I'd look up the links... but I have a feeling you'd be able to drive there faster than I could find the websites.
        Oh... Oh... I know you di-int!

          There is also the science museum, and children's museum in St Paul.

                Dial-up sucks, but its cheap, just like a cop's salary.
