Traffic Information

There are twelve main roadways in the Twin Cities that can be used to connect to other popular Minnesota destinations. When arriving at the Minneapolis Saint Paul Airport you can take either Interstate 35W and 94 are to head into downtown Minneapolis. Both interstates will connect you to the I-494/694 beltway around the metro area. The main I-35 freeway is split into two routes, I-35W which navigates around Minneapolis and I-35E which cuts through nearby St. Paul. You can stay updated on delays and accidents through the Minnesota 511 app or other traffic apps that can provide alternative routes.

The city streets of Minneapolis are laid out in a grid system and the city is divided into four quadrants: North, South, Northeast and Southeast. Minneapolis also uses a rather unique multi-colored street signs system that formerly indicated the priority of plowing during winter storms. Nowadays they designate certain kinds of streets with blue signs indicating Snow Emergency Routes and dark green signs indicate scenic parkways that ring around the city and the lakes. Rust-colored signs are for streets that primarily run east-west while light green signs are for roads running primarily north-south.

Sightseeing Destinations

Lake Calhoun

Lake Calhoun is the largest lake in Minneapolis and situated along the Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway, which connects other lakes in the area. Cycle or walk along the trails or head into the water if the weather is right. With three swimming beaches and the chance to canoe, kayak or windsurf a trip to the lake will certainly keep you busy if you like.

Science Museum of Minnesota

Located in Saint Paul along the Mississippi River this fantastic institution includes a massive temporary exhibit gallery, five permanent galleries, and ten acres of outdoor exhibition space. From hands-on areas to its display of a rare complete Triceratops specimen and other dinosaur-related collections the museum will fascinate all ages.

Minneapolis Art Museums

You can see amazing works of art at two world-class institutions, Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the Walker Art Center. The latter also hosts the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, the largest urban sculpture garden in the US, featuring works by iconic artists like Claes Oldenburg, Richard Serra, and Louise Bourgeois.

What to Do in Minneapolis in Winter 2020

Pack your warmest clothes when you travel to Minneapolis in the winter. The temperatures can be brutal and nearly always below freezing. The good news is this city has a lot to do indoors and a secret way to go between buildings without stepping a foot outside. Many buildings downtown are connected via the Skyway System, a series of enclosed walkways. You can do as the locals do and go ice skating, snowshoeing, or ice fishing at one of the many lakes in the area. There are also several parks in the city limits with cross-country ski trails like Theodore Wirth Park. The free Holidazzle event brings music and light shows to downtown Minneapolis. There are many museums to take in like the Minneapolis Institute of Art or the Walker Art Center. While the city streets are generally passable, it is a good idea to rent an SUV or all-wheel-drive vehicle with winter tires in order to traverse the snow.
