Five Must Do Activities in the Twin Cities

This article reviews five places in the Twin Cities to visit. It also provides information on ticket prices, parking, and hours of operation.

Mall of America

The Mall of America is the second largest shopping center in the United States. It sits on the land formerly occupied by the Metropolitan Stadium. My family treats the Mall of America as a pilgrimage every time we visit the area. This place has over 520 stores, 17 sit-down restaurants, 35 specialty restaurants, 21 fast food restaurants, a seven-acre amusement park, an aquarium, a movie theater, and an events area that hold over 400 events a year. Just to give you an idea of how massive this place is, seven Yankee Stadiums or 32 Boeing 747s can fit inside.

Hours: Mon.-Sat. 10 a.m. - 9:30 p.m., Sun. 11 a.m.-7 p.m.
Parking: Free on-site parking
Cost: Free for mall entry, $13.49-$18.99 for aquarium, amusement park varies
Tip: Buy aquarium tickets online to save $1-$2.

The Juicy Lucy (or Jucy Lucy)

The Juicy Lucy is not a place but a culinary experience. This is a hamburger with a hunk of cheese stuffed in the middle. When you take a bite, a lava flow of cheesy goodness comes forth. Two bars have laid claim to being the originator of this delight: Matt's Bar and the 5-8 Club. Not to be outdone, the Nook in Saint Paul has created the Juicy Nookie. The Groveland Tap has the Cajun Lucy and it has jalapeno peppers, and pepper jack cheese. The Blue Door Pub has the Juicy Blucy that features minced garlic and bleu cheese. For purely scientific research, try both of them. I did.

Hours: Matt's 11:30 a.m.-1 a.m., 5-8 Club Th.-Sat 11 a.m.-12 a.m.
Parking: Free on-site or street parking
Cost: $5-$7
Tip: Avoid at lunchtime.

Minnesota State Fair

Known as the Great Minnesota Get-Together, this 12-day event is a wonder to behold. Almost two million people attend the fair each year. Winners in a variety of categories from all over the state converge on Saint Paul to show their wares. The fair has exhibitions, farm animals, an amusement park, live music, live acts, and cheese curds. The fair is also, in my mind, the fried-food capital of the world.

Hours: August 25th-Labor Day 6 a.m.-midnight
Parking: $11 on-site parking
Cost: $8-$11, children under 5 are free
