Morning: You know what the cool thing is about waking up in the Hilton Minneapolis? You’re only one block away from the heart of Nicollet Mall; a top ten shopping street in the entire nation!
Also, the Hilton smells great and their breakfast is delicious.
Mid-Morning: Step outside your hotel door and right into the shopping haven of downtown Minneapolis: Nicollet Mall. Please do some neck stretches before you go, though – the street is LINED with huge deals and cool things to buy, so you’ll be twisting and turning your head a lot to soak it all in. You’ll find everything from jewelry to high-end fashion to rare books on this street.
Oh, and we should mention…NO SALES TAX ON APPAREL. That’s a pretty big deal.
Lunch: Once you’ve quelled your downtown shopping fix, head on over to the ever-trendy Uptown and grab some food to refuel. May we suggest the Uptown Cafeteria? Not only do they have delectable “comfort food,” but their rooftop view of downtown Minneapolis is simply stunning.
Afternoon: After you eat, head back outside and visit the boutique and chic shops of Uptown (say that five times fast). You’ve got thrift shops, big-name fashion stores, spice shops and a whole lot more. If there’s something cool, Uptown will definitely have it.
Evening: Grab all the cool stuff you just bought, put it on (not all of it), and strut your stuff in the place all the socialites go: Chino Latino. Dimly lit with accents of red light, the mood is already set for a smooth setting that matches the fantastic outfit you just bought. Try out some food from the “hot zones,” and indulge in the wild and crazy drinks on menu.
