There’s an energy in Minneapolis when spring rolls around. It crackles, and you can absolutely feel it when you enter the city. It’s tough to explain. But big things like this usually are.
There’s natural energy. This feeling of a rebirth. The white palate of winter becomes the canvas which spring paints colors so vibrant they would put the newest Samsung TV to shame. The sounds of new, green leaves flowing in the cool, 70 degree wind. The outdoors invites you to bike. To kayak. To explore the natural surroundings.
There’s creative energy. This intellectual spark that comes into the air to breathe. Film enthusiasts anticipate the world-renowned International Film Festival (check out the itinerary here), and art lovers enjoy the city’s creative offerings in the weekend-long Art-A-Whirl. And nothing is more inspirational and beautiful than a hand-crafted double play turned by the Minnesota Twins under the sun at Target Field; home of the 2014 All-Star Game.
When spring rolls around, there’s simply no better place to be in America. You won’t find another city where you can enjoy this signature outdoor experience with the attractions of a big city. Read on to see the experiences Minneapolis is ready to offer you this spring.
