No matter whether your daily grind consists of work, school, kids or a mix of it all, let’s be real: It’s hard to find a time and place to hang with the gals. But it’s always worth it, especially if you pick a destination that delivers the perfect blend of fun and chill time. In Minneapolis, you can have it all: spa experiences, a wealth of arts and culture, shopping and the Mighty Mississippi reminding us that sometimes, life is best enjoyed when we go with the flow.
Where to stay:
Scandinavia meets the North Woods at this uber-chic boutique hotel in the North Loop. Each cozy room features Swedish-inspired patterned wallpaper with deer, loons and flora, and you’ll be cuddling up with down duvets and Faribault Woolen Mills throws. Before you crash, head to the rooftop for the hotel’s star attractions: a Nordic sauna, heated-year-round outdoor pool and cocktail bar.
Spacious rooms and suites (including airy limestone bathrooms) allow plenty of space to hang at this Luxury Collection Hotel downtown. Head downstairs to speakeasy Constantine for stellar drinks, sorbets and one of the best Happy Hours in town.
