Important Cities

Important Cities


Minneapolis offers an array of cultural and recreational attractions. Set between towering skyscrapers and pristine lakes, the city provides year-round excitement. In winter, you can explore downtown through seven miles of skyways or take advantage of the many entertainment, shopping and dining options at the Mall of America. Art lovers will relish the world-class collections at the Minneapolis Art Institute, Walker Art Center and the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum. With more than 30 theaters, spectators will find no shortage of shows to enjoy. In summer, the 22 lakes in the city feature watersports, while the adjoining green spaces are ideal for hiking, biking and golf.

St. Paul

Saint Paul blends modern museums, grand architecture and natural escapes. Visit downtown attractions, such as the magnificent State Capitol and the historic Como Park, which features picnic areas, a conservatory and a zoo. In summer, hike along the banks of the Mississippi River and stop by the Minnesota Children's Museum and the Science Museum of Minnesota. The Minnesota Museum of American Art showcases local artists and the interactive Minnesota History Center features a host of exhibits, concerts and special events.


On the western tip of Lake Superior, Duluth is a natural oasis in Minnesota. The city features the scenic North Shore, 23 picturesque parks, Hawk Ridge, a favorite among bird watchers, and an impressive waterfront. Visitors will enjoy the renowned Sculpture Walk and the celebrated Railroad Depot, as well as the Great Lakes Aquarium.
Climate, Cuisine & Travel with Children

Climate, Cuisine & Travel with Children


Minnesota has a continental climate with warm summers and extremely cold winters. Heavy snow can be expected from December to April, therefore drivers should consider winter tires and SUVs to manage the rough terrain. The best time to the state is from June to August when visitors can enjoy the outdoors and lakes, as well as the numerous state festivals and farmers markets.


Minnesota is known for its wild berries and hazelnuts, as well as a variety of fish, such as walleye and trout from its countless lakes. Salads are also popular in Minnesota, including potato, pasta and dessert salads. Its Scandinavian and German heritage is seen in items such as lutefisk, gravlax, lingonberries, sausages and sauerkraut. Recent immigration has brought a variety of foods from Vietnam, Somalia, Laos, and Mexico, such as cha-lua, taquitos, tortillas, and poblanos. The annual Minnesota State Fair is famous for its food "on a stick," including pronto pups and deep fried candy bars, as well as its local beer selection.

Traveling with Children

Minnesota is very kid-friendly. Aside from its incalculable natural attractions, like its numerous lakes and parks, where children can enjoy water sports and swimming, the state also features the Mill City Museum, the Minnesota Children's Museum and the Science Museum of Minnesota, which include numerous interactive activities for kids. Free passes for the museums are available at the local libraries. At the Park Zoo and Conservatory, children can enjoy story times, feed the animals and see the Sparky the Sea Lion show in summer, and at the Valleyfair amusement park, kids can ride the heart-stopping North Star and the thrilling Wild Thing, as well as meet and greet the Charlie Brown Peanuts Gang.
Summer in Minnesota

Summer in Minnesota

One thing that gets overlooked about Minnesota is the number of waterfalls you can visit. Taking a trip to Hidden Falls, Gooseberry Falls or Minnehaha Falls is a great way to spend an afternoon. If you're looking for a beautiful drive, hop aboard scenic Highway 61 that starts in Duluth, Minnesota, and then runs along the northern shore of Lake Superior. In August, an excellent activity for the whole family is to visit the Minnesota State Fair.

Khalid at Sixt MSP airport rental was super helpful and friendly. He walked us through all of our options and made it quick and easy. Sixt's prices are very competitive and they had vehicles available right away unlike their competitors at MSP.

Best rental car experience I ever had. Great car, great price and great staff. Stanley was the best! Only use SIXT from now on!

I was a little worried reading some of the reviews online. However, we had no wait time, car was ready, check in was easy, getting keys, easy. Nice car, return was smooth and I'd say it was overall a great experience renting from Sixt. This was May 24-28, 2023 in Minneapolis at the airport.

Our experience with Khalid was great. We are older and set in our ways so we first rented with Dollar/Hertz- and what a mess! We were sent to two different airport locations and after an hour of being jerked around by the robots at Dollar/Hertz, we went to "the new kid on the block" named Sixt. What a pleasure!! Khalid was smart and interested in making it work for us. He found a car that was a bit more expensive than our previous reservation but well worth the price. All the folks at Sixt were different than other car rentals I have been to. The culture is fun and they really wanted to do the right thing by us. Good bye Dollar/Hertz and hello to Sixt. Thanks Khalid.

Best people to work with in the industry! I will always use Sixt. I look forward to seeing the Minneapolis MN crew again! Thank you to Noah & Ashj!

Rented through Sixt at Phoenix Sky Harbor. The price was great, the car was great, and the people working were pleasant and helpful. There was a small error on my invoice, and a brief email to customer service corrected it. I couldn't have been happier with the experience.

Stanley was super helpful - thanks!

7-Years + Counting ... I Love Renting VehicLes from Sixt RentaL! I'm saddened that Audi is no Longer a rentaL option, yet I'm pLeased with the vast array of Luxury VehicLes offered, incLuding the Upgrade Perks. I'm aLso impressed by your friendLy customer service reps within each of your Locations, with a SpeciaL Mention going to KhaLid (MSP Airport) for his WeLcoming HeLLo + SmiLe, PoLiteLy answering "ALL" of my 1st Time Lengthy Tourist Questions with Grace + for providing me with a Sweet Upgrade when my reserved vehicLe wasn't avaiLabLe. Thanks Again, KhaLid, for being a V.P. of 1st Impressions!! Side Note: I'd Like to see a more efficient checkout process within this Location. It took over 30-mins to go over the car + notate issues that were not noted from the previous check-in, which is not a vaLue-add of my time. Terry, who assisted me with notating the issues + taking photos provided SteLLar Customer Service + To'-Do's for MinneapoLis - Thanks!
