Minneapolis - Twins Series and Site Seeing

Jump to last reply

My wife and I plan to make a weekend of it in the Cities May 5-7, arriving in late afternoon of the 5th...in time to catch first of 3 Twins games. While we've been to Minneapolis before, it's always been a quick in and out to see a single Twins or Vikings game, or just up to Bloomington to the MOA and then back home (central Iowa).

If we want to spend a few hours at MOA, catch 3 Twins games and see anything worth seeing/visiting/shopping in downtown MPLS, where do you all suggest we stay? We have points built up with Hilton and Marriott, so suggestions for those 2 chans would be great, but we're not locked into them, either.

Also, how "safe" is it to walk around downtown at night? I assume there are areas to avoid and areas that are safe to roam, but I'm not at all familiar with the city, so any insight there is appreciated! Despite being from "farm country," we've explored several larger cities (Chicago, Boston, etc), but found it's always better to get a good idea of where to stay away from in advance. ;)

We assume we'll be using the light rail a LOT. :)
