As one half of Minnesota's Twin Cities (the other being St. Paul), Minneapolis is one of the shining beacons of the upper Midwest. With a deep-rooted passion for sports and an bustling entertainment hub, this clean, welcoming city is one of the many hidden gems located in the heart of the United States.
When it comes to sports in Minneapolis, the first team that comes to mind is the Minnesota Vikings out of the NFL. With their striking purple uniforms, the Vikings have been an integral part of Minnesota culture since 1961, and have been among the most successful teams in the league. A year rarely goes by where the Vikes are not at least in the conversation for Super Bowl glory, and with plenty of legendary players in their history, including Randy Moss, Fran Tarkenton and Adrian Peterson, that comes as no surprise.
The Vikings play their home games at the legendary Metrodome. One of the most iconic venues in all of sports, this venerable stadium gives the Vikings one of the biggest home field advantages in the league thanks to its raucous crowd.
Though the Vikings are the jewel of Minneapolis, they certainly aren't the only sports team. The Minnesota Twins have called the city home since 1961. They recently moved outdoors to play their home games at Target Field. The park offers a beautiful view of the city, not to mention one of the cleanest facilities in all of sports.
For NBA fans, the Minnesota Timberwolves have played at the nearby Target Center since 1989. Though they are the youngest team in the city, their dedicated fan base makes every game an experience in and of itself.
What might surprise some visitors is that Minneapolis is second only to New York City in terms of live theater per capita. Anybody looking to catch a play will more than likely be in luck, and there are plenty of beautiful and historic venues to check out. Perhaps most famous is the Guthrie Theater, which has earned numerous awards and recognitions over the year.
Those looking to check out a concert will want to stop by the First Avenue and 7th Street Entry, both well-respected live music venues.
Though it may often be overshadowed by the larger cities on the coast, Minneapolis is a great destination for sports and entertainment in the heartland.
