Minneapolis and St. Paul make up the Minnesotan Twin Cities. Minneapolis is a very Midwestern city, and pretty far from any other city. Distinctive neighborhoods make up this town, and represent the diverse tastes of the locals. There is a definite DIY flare to the city and a feeling that many people just flocked into town from the parries and north woods. The city is left-leaning and liberal; vegetarians don't have it too hard here.

You don't have a choice in picking your Minneapolis Hostel. So do book ahead around major events, as there aren't too many beds in town. The hostel in Minneapolis is currently the only one for a ways around.

Getting around Minneapolis is easy though, even without a car. Get a day pass for the public transportation and just hop on a bus or take the Hiawatha Line light rail from the airport or to the Mall of America. Additionally, many visitors enjoy bicycling. It's possible to rent a bike from most local bike shops. The Cities aren't the most compact, but the central areas of Minneapolis especially can easily be toured by bike. There are plenty of other bicyclists around as well as adequate infrastructure. Another amusing way of getting around is exploring the downtown skywalk system. You can easily cross downtown following several color-coded routes without ever going outside. In the cold Minnesotan winters this can provide an entertaining break from the cold. The city is indeed very visitor friendly and a place that leftists, art fans, shopping fanatics, and outdoor enthusiasts all will love.
