Car Rental  (4 Answers)

I'm planning a trip to Minnesota in a few months and have been checking for car rentals. The prices they want at MPLS airport are ridiculously expensive. We travel often and have never found prices for car rentals as high as MPLS. Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I can rent other than the airport, but still convenient enough to taxi there to pick it up?

Is this possible without having to fly back to the USA?  (4 Answers)

I live in the USA. I want to fly to Dominican Republic. Than I want to fly to Brazil. I am thinking this is not possible without having to fly back to the USA... which would not be budget friendly. I am assuming it is not possible. I read you can't enter the Dominican without a flight leaving. I don't want to go back to the USA, I want to fly straight to Brazil. The thing is I don't know exactly how long I will be staying in DR? So my hopes of flying to DR with a one way ticket there was shot down. As for Brazil... I read you need a tourist visa issued from your resident country. Does this mean I would not be able to fly straight to Brazil from DR? Help!!!

safety in Minneapolis  (3 Answers)

I don't live in Minneapolis currently but I am moving there in a week. I took a job that requires me to be at work by 4:30 a.m. I don't own a car and for some silly reason I assumed the bus line would be open at that time an of course I discover that they aren't. I'll be living downtown and I work down town too, so I was wondering, how dangerous is it to walk through uptown and downtown at 4 in the morning?????

girls weekend  (4 Answers)

3 or 4 of us are planning a girls weekend in Minneapolis at the end of the month. We will be flying in from different places and meet at the airport. Originally we were going to Ely to dogsled and stay in a B&B but decided that it's too far for a long weekend and especially in iffy weather. We were thinking that staying downtown might be fun. Other things we like are B&B's, spas, wine, yoga. Not very excited about the MOA. What we are looking for are suggestions of where to stay and what to do.
Thanks!

What to do during four hours in transit in Minneapolis?  (24 Answers)

Hi
I have made my bookings to fly from Washington D.C. to Vancouver with Delta, transiting through Minneapolis/St Pauls.
I will arrive on a Wednesday at 13:30 and fly out at 17:30, so have four hours in transit.
I am frankly bamboozled by the immigration arrangements between the US and Canada, sp please excuse what might be very simplistic questions. I am presuming that my baggage will be checked through to Vancouver, as this is where I clear Canadian immigration and customs?
As for myself, I am presuming that I will still be deemed to be in the US? If so, will I be allowed to pass through into the public area of the airport or do I have to stay 'planeside'? Even if I can pass into the public area, is four hours long enough to see/do anything?
Regards
Cathy

Ring in the New Year?

Hello all!

I know it is a bit early, but wife and I finally got grandparents to sit for daughter over the holiday weekend and are going to be in the area over the New Years Eve weekend. We have tickets to football, reservations at Murray's, a plan to hit MofA and even the art museum, but no idea what to do or where to be to ring in the new year. We are not major drinkers, nor would we like to be in a crazy dance club full of kids! I have heard about Acme comedy club, but does it have shows NYE? What about after the show? Where should we go? Hotel party? Small bar? Somewhere we can be around couples and in a comfortable environment... too much to ask :}

Thanks much in advance.

2 and 1/2 days in Minneapolis  (8 Answers)

Hi!
We are a couple of friends from Spain planning to stay in Minneapolis from September 24, leaving on 27 in the morning. So we would stay 2 days and a half.

We're going to the Vikings-Lions game on sunday, since I'm a huge Vikings fan!!! SKOL VIKINGS!!! But besides that, I'm looking for suggestions.....
My initial plan was: Day 1, visiting Minneapolis on the afternoon; Day 2, game day! then visiting St. Paul on the afternoon; Day 3, round-trip to Duluth.

However, maybe visiting Duluth is not worthy since we are staying for such a short time in Minneapolis...

Need some help and ideas; will be truly appreciated.

Thanks,

David

Minneapolis to Duluth  (1 Answer)

Hello & Happy Fathers Day. I understand from reading your posts. (Most Very Helpful) That Travelers can get around the Minneapolis St.Paul area via lite rail & bus, What about cities beyond?? We would like to see Split rock light house as well as other sites off the beaten path. I would assume renting a car would be best. We are coming in via Amtrak, where would we go to rent a car ? The Amtrak ticket only Says we arrive @ Amtrak station. Will there be signs like @ Airports?? So afraid of getting lost & missing our return train back to Indiana..Oh well go big or go home..Any comments will be very welcome. Thanks, Tami

Moving to Minneapolis  (3 Answers)

Hey Minneapolians! In August I'm coming towards this wonderful city to stay for half a year to gain work experience. Besides working I'll have quite some spare time (especially during the weekends) and I was wondering where this 21 year-old student could get to know other people. Sportive activities but also clubs or bars have my personal preference.

I'll be staying somewhere near the University of Minneapolis.

Thanks in advance!

Guide / companion - for traveling across the city

Hi,

Is there anybody who can accompany/guide me over the weekends to travel across the city, visit the places generally ? Obviously somebody who knows the city well, does not have much work, rather have time to kill during weekends [like me] and do not mind jut walking around the city, try out eateries, buses, rails - mostly budget options, may be going to museums, parks, lakes - though they are frozen now, the river etc.

I am staying till march end - in Eagan MN. Though this may not be the best of weather, I am not sure if I will ever be back here. Being on my own and exploring the bus routes and rail routes and all possible places is definitely an option - but it will be easier for me, if somebody who knows them, is there to guide, just in case.

Thanks a lot.
