Minnesota at a Glance

Bloomington, Minnesota - Compare Hotels

Bloomington, Minnesota

Many of the hotels in Bloomington are situated either within walking distance of the Mall or a five- to 10-minute drive. The Country Inn & Suites by Carlson, on Killebrew Drive, is the closest; the Mall is literally right outside the door

Bloomington is the third largest city in Minnesota, after Minneapolis and St. Paul, with a population of 90,000. Its claim to fame is the Mall of America, the largest retail and entertainment complex in the nation.

Keep in mind that one of the primary reasons for visiting Bloomington is shopping and that it is easy to spend a bundle. Scout out brochures and advertising circulars in your hotel lobby for discount offers.

Twin Cities, Minnesota - Compare Hotels

Twin Cities, Minnesota

For the adventurous traveller who is looking for more than just a place to lay one's head, there are several alternatives to the urban or suburban Midwestern hotel within an hour's drive of the heart of the Twin Cities.

Major lodgings in both Minneapolis and Saint Paul give a nod to Minnesota's notorious winter weather, which can make travel and visits rough between November and March.

Both downtowns are effectively "winterized" with a network of enclosed and heated skywalks connecting virtually all major lodgings, restaurants, offices, retail outlets and sports arenas in the cities.

The Twin Cities are sited so that to stay in one is to enjoy the other. The shores of the scenic St. Croix River are close enough for cruises and day visits, while the big area draw is the ever-popular Mall of the Americas.

Minnesota Travel Notes

Minneapolis, Minnesota

A Twin Cities Shopping and Spa Getaway: by Mary Mihaly.

Shopping - that transcendental, irresistible, often-exasperating escape - just might be America's all-time favourite diversion. That's in spite of lines that never move, bags that rip, other people's whining kids, and clerks who can't be bothered.

But in Minneapolis/St. Paul, they've figured out how to eliminate the aggravation: When the going gets tough, the tough goes to a spa. And then they shop some more.

The Twin Cities, You Bet: by Leon Schwarzbaum.

Although St. Paul is the Minnesota state capital, Minneapolis dominates the skyline, cultural life and entertainment scene of these cities, separated by the Mississippi and Minnesota Rivers.

And it's to Minneapolis that thousands of visitors go for a year-round series of festivals and public events.
