4 Unique Experiences in Minneapolis


The New York Times ranked Minneapolis number 23 on their international list of top 52 places to go in 2017. There are lots of unique experiences in Minneapolis, Minnesota that make it such a great place to live and visit.

Here are four of our favorite unique experiences in Minneapolis near Valley Creek Apartments.

Take a Prince Tour

Prince’s “creative sanctuary”, Paisley Park, is now open for public tours. There are several different tour experiences available that give you a hands-on look at the famous recording studios, sound stages, and special exhibits. Some packages include meals, parties, and access to additional areas of the property. Make sure you make reservations online and be aware that cameras and video equipment are not allowed.

Flour Power

The Mill City Museum is built into the ruins of the original “A Mill” that was destroyed by a flour dust explosion in the late 1800s. During your visit, you can watch Minneapolis in 19 Minutes FlatĀ and ride the Flour Tower 8 flights as you learn about the history of the mill. You can also watch milling and baking demonstrations and sample bread in the Baking Lab. Take a self-guided tour of the gallery and enjoy views of the river from the deck.

Taste the World

You don’t need a passport to travel around the world! Spend the day at Midtown Global Market where you can shop for one-of-a-kind gifts, art, jewelry, and clothes. Savor the flavors of India, Mexico, Korea, Italy, and many more countries at one of the varied restaurants. Keep an eye on their calendar to discover musical and multicultural events throughout the year.

Discover the Mall of America – Beyond the Shopping

Take advantage of everything there is to do at the Mall of America that doesn’t involve shopping. Sure, there are over 500 retail stores, but this gargantuan mall also boasts an aquarium, a Nickelodeon theme park with over 25 rides, a Crayola Experience, miniature golf, a mirror maze, and a bowling alley. You can also zip line, “fly” over America, ride go-karts, pilot a flight simulator, relax at a spa, and more!
