The thought of a staycation in Minneapolis, MN, has never been more enticing than it is right now, with the continent in disarray. However, the majority of Americans have already grown accustomed to “staycations” in recent years. The art of a staycation, contrary to popular belief, still requires several hours of research and planning, much like your average getaway. The reason being, most people still want to try new things, see new sights, and explore the less-traveled landscapes, even if it’s only 10 to 20 miles from their home. Thus, the Minnestay team has collected some fun staycation ideas for couples who need an extended break from the house but don’t want to hop on a plane en route to a faraway locale.
Staycation Ideas for Couples: Urban Living (With a Twist)
Minnestay boasts one of the largest fleets of condos in Minneapolis, most of which rest high above the city streets at Sable, North Loop’s first owner-occupied condominium complex. Not only are these dazzling, modern penthouses within walking distance of Target Field, six craft breweries, and countless award-winning eateries, but each unit is steeped in sophistication and style. Travelers particularly appreciate the high-end finishes, open concepts, and sprawling cityscapes. It’s cosmopolitan urban living at its finest.
Most staycation ideas for couples revolve around gourmet cuisine, at least to some degree. Cook your own meal together inside your sleek full kitchen, or reach out to one of our highly-recommended local private chefs. But, of course, Sable’s most compelling draw is its sizable, breathtaking rooftop deck. The Downtown skyscapes, especially around dusk, are genuinely heartwarming. Open a bottle of wine (or a crowler from a local craft brewery) and simply bask in the vibrant evening sky as slowly it fades behind Minneapolis, giving way to a bevy of stars.
Summertime Adventures in Minneapolis
While North Loop has everything (and more), including fine dining, professional sports, and comedy clubs, don’t be afraid to branch out this summer to Uptown, Downtown, and Northeast for a little urban “adventure.” The best way to explore Minneapolis is via a Nice Ride bicycle rental or Lime scooter. Nearby attractions include the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, Lake of the Isles, and Stone Arch Bridge. Act like tourists by enjoying a picnic at Boom Island Park, taking the Blue Line to the Mall of America, and posing for Instagram pics at the Bob Dylan Mural. It’s important to rediscover what you love so much about the Twin Cities (and each other) from time to time.
