Breakfast: Consume your saturated fat in style at downtown’s Cardigan Donuts. One look at the display case with rows of housemade jam-filled bismarks, churro rolls, and bourbon apple fritters, and you’ll want to try it all. Pro tip: Order a dozen among your group for maximum sampling nirvana, and pair ‘em with a cup of primo local Blackeye Roasting Co. coffee.
Explore: The Twins and Vikings don’t need to be in town for you to visit their incredible digs. In fact, the 90-minute tours that navigate Target Field and U.S. Bank Stadium take you places you’d never see during a game. Check out Target Field’s press box, clubhouse and swanky suites while learning about the 39,000-seat ballpark, once voted the No. 1 baseball stadium experience in North America. Built in 2016, U.S. Bank Stadium boasts some impressive stats, too, housing more than 66,000 football fans and concertgoers under its transparent roof. Tours take you through the team locker room, across the stadium floor and past the stadium’s art collection.
