The Minnesota Twin Cities of Saint Paul and Minneapolis comprise the most heavily populated area of the state and provide Minnesota visitors and residents with a unique two-for-one experience. The sister cities on opposite sides of the Mississippi River offer a multitude of top-notch tourist attractions.
Within the Twin Cities you will find four internationally known art museums and three Tony-winning theaters.
Minneapolis is known for its culture and the capitol city of St. Paul is a showcase of historic buildings.
