Annual Conference Sneak Peak: Things to Do and Places to Eat in Minneapolis

Arriving early? Staying after the conference is over? Looking for something to do with your free time? There are a variety of things to see and do in downtown Minneapolis and the surrounding area. Whether you desire a shopping excursion, an outdoor adventure or want to immerse yourself in the arts, you’ll have no trouble finding something to keep you busy.

Arts and culture
Take in a show at one of the more than 30 performance venues. The Hennepin Theatre District is home to the State, Orpheum, Pantages and New Century theaters and the country’s oldest satirical theater, Brave New Workshop. You’ll be able to see Broadway classics, cabaret, unique plays, dance and performing arts at the many venues throughout the city.

Minneapolis is home to several world-class museums. Home to over 80,000 works of art representing 5,000 years of world history, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts inspires wonder, spurs creativity and nourishes the imagination. Internationally recognized as a leading arts venue, Walker Art Center presents contemporary visual arts and design exhibitions; dance, theater and music performances; and film screenings.

Like to shop?
Home to the trendiest discount retailer and largest shopping complex in the country, it’s no surprise that people come from all over the world to shop in Minneapolis. Aside from Target and the Mall of America, you can enjoy shopping at the many chic boutiques, malls and diverse retail districts located around the city. Spend a few hours or an entire day hunting for bargains at places like Albertville Premium Outlets, Candyland, FinnStyle and Nicolett Mall. With no sales tax on apparel and shoes, you may even need to bring an extra suitcase for all of your purchases!

Food and wine
With four distinct seasons and dozens of international culinary traditions, Minneapolis restaurants offer farm-to-table experiences you won't find anywhere else.

Take the short drive to area orchards and farms, or one of the local Minneapolis Farmer's Markets, for just-picked produce and local specialties. Sit down to a meal by an internationally-known chef at a Minneapolis restaurant where farm fresh ingredients inspire many local chefs. Last year alone, four local chefs were nominated for the James Beard Award - the Oscar of culinary - including Tim McKee of La Belle Vie and Solera, and Alex Roberts of Restaurant Alma and Brasa Rotisserie. Experience the flavors of Sweden, Germany and Poland -- or Somalia, Vietnam and Mexico. From fine Minneapolis restaurants to local fairs, you'll find a culture of locally-grown, globally-inspired foods that nourish body and soul.
