Welcome to Minneapolis, home of the Twins, unbearable winters, and the legendary Prince. Minneapolis is infamously known for its cold winters, so while you may not be looking forward to bearing the cold, here’s a quick tour to give you some fun ideas to stay warm and make the most of your time in Minneapolis, whether you’re coming for Super Bowl LII or for your next business trip. And remember, we’re always here at InMotion to help make your business trips feel like vacations.
To all of you football fans out there, the U.S. Bank Stadium is not only home for the Minnesota Vikings, but is also hosting the 2018 Super Bowl LII.
Check out the schedule of events going on during the week before the big game as fans start pouring in and joining the hype. The festival features Super Bowl LIVE, a free event at Nicollet Mall, and the Super Bowl Experience as the two main events to watch out for.
Paisley Park is the perfect place to tour to get a taste of the life of Prince. You get a first-hand experience of how Prince wrote, produced, and performed all of his famous hits in the place where it all started.
And if you’re looking for other ways to get the full experience of Prince in his hometown, check out these ongoing Prince experiences.
Looking to experience culture and history together in one place? The Minneapolis Institute of Art features more than 80,000 works of art including sculpture, photography, paintings, drawings and prints. So if you’re a history buff, or if you’re trying to become one, this is a great place to spend your free time and learn something new on your next business trip to Minneapolis.

You get 3 weeks of service with 1,000 minutes, unlimited texting, and up to 2GB of 4G LTE data. No more worrying about contracts or trying to find Wi-Fi hotspots, so you can video call your friends and family to share the experience as you walk through the museum.

So while you’re instagramming your delicious plate with your new iPhone, use your Apple Lightning adapter to be able to plug in any 3.5mm headphones. It’s going to be loud in there, so you’re going to need this if you have to make a call.
Sometimes you need to take a break, clear your head with some fresh air, and enjoy the beautiful gift of nature. The Minnehaha Park is one of the best parks in Minneapolis to go for a hike and see the waterfall. If you’re lucky, you may be able to see the famous waterfall while it’s frozen, which simply adds to its appeal and makes your time there all worth the while.
The hiking trails are a great place to go for a run and relieve some stress with your Samsung Gear IconX Earphones. These earbuds are totally wireless, and you can upload your favorite running playlist directly to the earbuds so you don’t have to worry about losing or damaging your phone while you run. Hurry on over to InMotion because these seamless headphones are on sale from now until the end of January!
The Guthrie Theater is the place to go if you want to see a play, production, or even educational and professional training. As the epitome of culture and what Time magazine called “a 21st-century dream factory”, the Guthrie has three different theaters, exquisite dining, and beautiful public spaces to hang out. So go see a show, explore the intricate design of the building, shop at the Guthrie Store, or take a backstage tour on either a Friday or Saturday morning.
The theater is located in the Mill District downtown, and features a stunning cantilever bridge 175 feet long spanning the Mississippi River. You can use your Insta360 Nano camera to take stunning 360 photos and videos to show off to your friends! It’s easy to use and connects right to your iPhone so you don’t have to learn how to use a new device.
With all of the landmarks, art, and culture, Minneapolis is a wonderful city with a progressive vibe. Even if you didn’t have to go there for business, a trip there to see all of the history and attractions is definitely still worth your time.
