Minnesota is an amazing state full of personality, active fun, and beauty. We have put together a list of our favorite places to eat, drink, workout, and do in the Minneapolis and St.Paul metro-area. Looking for something to do outside the cities? We also included Team Fit Foodie’s favorite places to hike and camp in Minnesota!
Hi there! It’s Team Fit Foodie here to talk to you about everything MINNESOTA. As much as we love to travel, Minnesota will always be one of our favorites. Minnesota is home. We all live in Minneapolis proper (Lee, Linley, and Emily), which makes getting around pretty easy and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Why is Minnesota so awesome? The Minneapolis/St.Paul (the Twin Cities) area is rich with food, culture, entertainment, amazing people and more. If you are an active person there are lakes and state parks within 30 minutes from the cities and if you’re a city dweller, you will fit right in. Basically, you have the best of both urban + rural living. Minneapolis has been ranked high on top lists such as most active cities, best bikable cities, and more.
We have been receiving email inquiries from Fit Foodie Finds readers asking where our favorite places to eat, drink, workout, and do are in Minnesota. Whether you are asking because you are traveling to Minnesota or are native to Minnesota and are just looking for new things to do, we heard you! We have been meaning to write this post for a while now, so here it is! Even better, we now have a Minnesota Love page that you can reference when you’re looking for something specific to do.
Oh Minnesota, how we love your food. The Twin Cities are full of restaurants that will tantalize your taste buds. There are talented chefs coming out of the woodwork in every pocket of the Minneapolis/St.Paul area. Whether you are looking for a tasty grab-n-go meal or are looking for a sit-down meal that you’ll remember forever, there is something for everyone on this list!
Beer and cocktails are done right in the Twin Cities. If you are in Northeast Minneapolis you will stumble upon a number of hoppy and delicious breweries! It is easy to hide out for a whole afternoon playing bags and sipping a peanut butter porter (hey, Dangerous Man). If it is a cocktail you’re looking for, distilleries and speakeasies are starting to pop up all over the city. Make sure you take an Uber or have a DD, because these places know how to mix a drink. BE SAFE.
It’s no secret that Team Fit Foodie has our favorite places to workout. If you follow us on Instagram, you know that Switch Minneapolis is our main-squeeze when it comes to getting our sweat on. However, there are studios we love all over the cities and we are looking forward to hearing your recommendations for new places to check out!
There are countless things to do in the Twin Cities. We have museums, festivals, and races to fill your calendar. If you are looking for something outside of the cities we have amazing state parks where you can camp and hike in the summer, as well as snowshoe and cross country ski in the winter. There is something for everyone!
Now, go have fun and don’t forget to let us know if you have any great recommendations!
