Minneapolis (and around MN)

I lived in Minneapolis for a wonderful, happy, bike-filled three years from 2011-2014. Minneapolis has a lot going for it: an abundance of lakes, miles of bike parkways, the Mississippi River, and the most profitable co-op in the US. Here is a collection of places where I’ve visited, played, and/or eaten. Whether you live in the Twin Cities or are just visiting, hopefully you’ll find some information! My favorite eateries are marked with an *. Please note: I would NOT recommend going everywhere on this list. I link this page to places I didn’t love (or even like) so you can read the review and pick a better option. 🙂
