Enjoy a relaxing cruise on the majestic Minneapolis Queen, a 100-foot modern-day replica of the grand riverboats that used to navigate the Mississippi River. As you make your peaceful way down the river in this authentic paddlewheel boat, you'll pass along the southern trails of the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway and Heritage Trail, past the University of Minnesota campus riverfront and under the stunning 35W Bridge. Along the way, you'll get fabulous views of the St. Anthony Falls as well as the historic Stone Arch Bridge and amazing river bluffs. Your captain will narrate portions of the 90-minute voyage and provide facts on the various landmarks and attractions you'll pass. The Minneapolis Queen offers a full cash bar with beverages and snacks. Learn More
Sadly there is not a moderately priced cafe/wine bar within 2 blocks. The nearby Radisson (maybe it's a Towne Court) has a very mediocre restaurant. On the corner is a LOUD place 'Waters....something' but I'm concerned that restauranteurs ignore needs of 'mature' people. I sincerely hope when St Paul redoes the former Macy's block, it includes a restaurant/bar similar - if not the same- as the old Rosewood Rm.Courting Harry dining • Apr 11 2014 star this tip starred
This family has been regulars at the History Theater for years. We have always parked in the ramp by the Children's Museum, just a block away. Now we are looking forward to taking the light rail from the burbs and avoiding parking all together. When the Central Corder opens in June, the train will stop literally at the door of the History Theatre. This tremendous venue will be incredibly accessible from anywhere the light rail goes or can be picked up!The Incredible Season of Ronnie Rabinovitz info • Feb 15 2014 star this tip starred
Quotes & Highlights
Beloved Minnesota storyteller Kevin Kling teams up with the lovely and talented Simone Perrin to spin some yarns and sing some tunes exploring the sometimes loving, sometimes tumultuous, often hysterical shared histories of our sibling cities: Minneapolis and St. Paul. From their beginnings as St. Anthony and Pigs Eye through their growth as the milling and commerce centers of the Midwest, these “twins” have shared a lot of adventures over the years.
