GETTING TO MINNEAPOLIS
Meet Minneapolis, the Minneapolis visitors’ bureau, has a very helpful website, filled with information on tours, attractions, restaurants, breweries, nightlife, and other things to do before or after the meeting in Minneapolis, MN and the surrounding areas.
Voted "Best Airport in America," the (MSP) Minneapolis - St. Paul International Airport is a centrally located travel hub revered for its ease of check-in, security, and amenities.
The Minneapolis-St Paul International Airport (MSP) voted "The 5th Most Reliable Large Airport" by Peter Greenberg is the country’s 17th busiest travel hub with 34 million passengers passing through each year and 12th busiest for aircraft operations. Compared to other metro areas, only one other U.S. city serves more nonstop markets per capita. The recent arrival of Southwest Airlines offers greater affordability, and MSP’s central location offers a speedy trip (15 – 30 minutes) to the city.
Metro Transit offers fast, frequent service to both downtowns, Mall of America and hundreds of other popular attractions. For an extremely efficient way to travel, get around town on the METRO Blue and Green light rail lines and the A and C bus rapid transit lines. The METRO Blue Line connects downtown Minneapolis with the airport and Mall of America, and the METRO Green Line connects downtown Minneapolis, the University of Minnesota and downtown St. Paul.
