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 guys. 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: epic eats, stadium tours, active adventures and the Mighty Mississippi reminding us that sometimes, life is best enjoyed when we go with the flow.
Where to stay:
Going back to school never felt as cool as this trendy hotel planted in the heart of the University of Minnesota campus. Smart, playful touches include headboards and lamps printed with North Woods fishing scenes, air hockey in the lounge, and even Topgolf Swing Suites where you can virtually up your golf game. After exploring the surrounding Dinkytown neighborhood (known for its eclectic foodie scene) or catching a Gophers sports game, kick back with a Minnesota Nice cocktail at the hotel’s Beacon bar.
