Airports are more than points of departure and arrival

Welcome to Minneapolis! The Minneapolis- Saint Paul International Airport, commonly known as MSP, is the largest and busiest airport in the Upper Midwest region. Whether you’re here for the lakes, beautiful weather, hip downtown, or just passing through, the overwhelming size of MSP and constant crowd can make it easy to lose your way. The airport also supports both Air Force Reserve Command and Air National Guard flight operations, so there’s a lot going on! Steer clear of the traffic and follow this guide to which hot spots to hit on your journey through MSP. InMotion will walk you through places to eat, shop, relax, and of course, shop, to make your journey much more enjoyable.

Quick & convenient food for a layover

Yummy Hello Pizza


If you’re in a hurry to get to the next gate or rushing to start your vacation, I’m sure you’re not interested in a sit-down meal. You’ll run into chains such as Five Guys or Burger King, but MSP hosts locally owned restaurants that put these chains to shame. Find your quick dose of delicious at Hello Pizza, the New York-style slice shop that will satisfy any taste buds. Try their slice of the day, or a full-sized pie if you’re really hungry! No judgments here. Cancel out the noise of the crowd with your new Bose QuietComfort35 II Wireless Headphones from Headphone Hub so you can enjoy a nice slice of heaven!

Have some extra time to kill?

Stop by The Twins Grill for food and drinks

Located in Concourse C in Terminal 1-Lindbergh, this restaurant serves ballpark concession items, as well as appetizers and entrees like salmon and steak. If you’re a sports fan, then the decor and design of The Twins Grill will certainly appeal to you. The restaurant has a mural honoring Harmon Killebrew and Kirby Puckett, and the Town Wall featuring pictures of every community ballpark in Minnesota. I can guarantee you’ll be able to kill an hour or two enjoying a cold beer, watching tv on one of their 29 flat screen TV’s or just enjoying the chill atmosphere.

If the crowd gets too rowdy during a game, listen to music or your favorite podcast with Apple AirPods headphones that will automatically connect to your iPhone, Apple Watch or iPad when you pull them out of the charging case. These state-of-the-art earbuds begin to play as soon as you put them in your ears and pauses the moment you take them out!

Looking to stretch your legs before sitting on a tight plane?

Practice your golf swing at the PGA Virtual Golf Experience

This spot comes highly recommended by iStore Manager, Paul, as a great spot to kill some time while you’re waiting for your flight to board. Also in Terminal 1, the PGA Experience includes a putting green, retail store, food and beverages services and WiFi. MPS’s indoor golf is the first and only facility in a U.S. airport so don’t miss your opportunity to warm up your swing before hitting the green on your vacation!

Listen to music to get in the zone using your new Apple EarPods with Lightning Connector! These new comfortable headphones maximize sound output for high-quality audio. The built in remote lets you adjust audio and even answer or end calls with a pinch of the cord.  

Hushed areas to relax

Escape the noise and take a nap in a quiet space

At a bustling airport much like MSP, it can be difficult to locate a quiet area to relax. Grab your headphones and relax in seating areas just above the Airport Mall. Watch the flow of travelers below you, plug in your phone, and crank up that music to drown out the stress of your busy travels. Keep track of time with your new Apple Watch 3 so you don’t miss your boarding time!

Located at Terminal 1 on the Northeast corner of the mall area, the popular iStore is near impossible to miss. This store sells official Apple products and more like wearable technology, portable power banks, headphones & Bluetooth speakers. Not too far from the iStore is also a Headphone Hub! You can find the Hub right down the hall, centrally located in the mall.  If you're prone to losing your headphones when traveling, then definitely stop by Headphone Hub for a free demo of Klipsch’s R6i II BLK Reference Mic’d Earbud, Jabra- Elite Sport, Beats by Dre- Beats Studio 3 Wireless and many more!  The products at both stores are perfect for any business traveler shopping for the newest electronic accessories or travel gadgets.

Traveling isn’t always smooth, though many of us wish it were. Make sure you leave yourself some time to stop in at iStore or Headphone Hub to check out their wide variety of headphones and gadgets that will become your new travel companion.
