Ideas for Planning Your Family Reunion In the Twin Cities

Attend a Professional Sports Event

Minneapolis is home to an NFL team, an NBA team, an MLB team, and a WNBA team. The Minnesota Vikings play at U.S. Bank Stadium and provide one of the best pro football experiences. The Minnesota Twins call Target Field home. Both the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Minnesota Lynx play at Target Center. The Lynx are known as one of the best teams in the league with four WNBA Championships under their belt. Or check out the NCHC Tournament.

Get In the Water

If you’re visiting in the summer, there are many lakes and ponds around the Twin Cities and no shortage of places to swim or get a tan. Cedar Lake East Beach is a relaxing place to cool off and forget you’re in the middle of a city. Fort Snelling State Park has a beach and offers great fishing and wildlife spotting. A favorite among families, Lake Nokomis is one of three sailing lakes in the Minneapolis park system and offers many other recreational opportunities. If you’re visiting in the colder months, try an indoor waterpark. Great Wolf Lodge and Venetian Waterpark both offer fun in the water year-round!

Do Some Shopping

Shopping is definitely a crowd-pleaser. Take advantage of the world-class Minneapolis shopping malls, multitude of stores, and entertaining retail hubs. Here are a few spots to check out during your stay.

Play a Round of Golf

Golf is a game that intrigues and challenges people of all ages. There are more than a dozen courses around the Twin Cities from kid-friendly nine-holes to expansive 18-hole courses. One thing is for sure, you can expect pristine greens and beautiful landscapes. Avid golfers in the family can bring their own set of clubs and gear that they prefer to use. For folks traveling light and hoping to rent their equipment, most courses have pro shops ready to equip you with everything you need. If all the equipment seems like a bit too much, give disc golf a try!
