Minneapolis in a Nutshell

Lucky us, we got to hang out in Minneapolis and St. Paul last week! K and I visited our best friend in Japan, Christine, who now lives back in her homestate of Minnesota. It was our first trip to the Twin Cities, but hopefully not our last. There are so many cool things to do and amazing places to eat there. I would definitely recommend a visit--it's easy to get around because it's very bike-friendly and has great public transportation, too. Thanks to Christine for showing us around!

  1. My old stomping grounds! Oh, you are making me homesick!

    I lived in Minneapolis for over 10 years. I adore it and would love to go back for a visit.

    It has been about ten years since I was up there but I remember loving:

    Uptown (my teenage haunt)
    Bruegger's Bagles
    Annie's Parlor
    First Avenue
    Aardvark Records

    And many, many more places...

    Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

  2. Dinkytown??? What's that? Sounds like a fun trip.

  3. I hope to make my way up to Minneapolis someday. Glad you had a great trip!

  4. Awww looks like you had a fun trip, love the picture collage!
