Minneapolis-St. Paul in the Winter

It looks like I am going to be visiting family in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area sometime in the next few months, and I want to make sure my hosts don't have to figure out all entertainment/experiences on their own. What should I do/see in the Twin Cities in winter? I'll check out some guide books, but I'd love some personal recommendations. And if there's something I should definitely skip, I'd like to hear about that as well. [more inside]

Little Vacation on the Prairie

I will be going out to the Black Hills this fall, and am thinking about stopping at a few Laura Ingalls Wilder sites. What are they like? Will I, as a serious fan of her writing and serious hater of corny touristy crap, enjoy them? [more inside]

In St. Paul until Dec. 20. Want to experience beautiful snowy nature.

I have four days to find something wonderful and lovely to do outside, preferably near St. Paul. If it were not winter, I'd go kayaking. Is there a lovely outdoor winter spot to walk, maybe near water or unique-to-me outdoor areas? A special snow-covered lake? Should I get skis even though I've never been on skis? [more inside]

Downtown Minneapolis bathrooms

I will be temporarily stranded in downtown Minneapolis sometime this week, and while I'm not particularly worried because there's a ton of food around the IDS Center, I'm more concerned about bathroom availability: Are there any public bathrooms around that area in downtown Minneapolis, or "customer only" bathrooms in cheap restaurants? Since I'll have to eat somewhere anyway, I can plan for that if necessary. Thanks!

North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota ... go!

So the Ferg fam is thinking about trying to do a road-trip vacation the middle two weeks in July - original thought had been a trailer-camping trip through South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, etc, but we've scratched that plan for this year due to the fact that we would have needed to plan it last year. So maybe that will be next summer. In the meantime, we have the travel bug, and time and (some) money, so are thinking about trying to do the eastern halves of North and South Dakota, Minnesota, and maybe Wisconsin. (Coming from Kansas City, MO.) We've been to Minneapolis, but never really anywhere else in any of those 4 states, so ... what do we need to see/do/know? MeFi has been awesome for prior trip planning, so any suggestions are appreciated. [more inside]

What should I see/do in MPLS to help me decide whether to move there?

I'm a Chicagoan who has lived in Portland, OR for four years. I miss the Midwest and I'm considering moving to Minneapolis (or possibly St. Paul). Next week, I'll be visiting the Twin Cities to scope it out. Help me plan a kick-ass and productive itinerary for my limited time in town! Also, what small progressive church should I attend on Sunday morning? [more inside]

Where to stay near Minneapolis airport (MSP) before very-early flight?

Next Thursday I have a 515a flight (on American née US Air, so Terminal 1 is my point of departure) out of MSP. Assuming I'll go through security at around 400-415, it seems silly to stay at a hotel the night before. The airport is open 24 hours. What I'm curious about is if I can I go through security around midnight and try to catch a few ZZZs in the terminal? If not, can I sleep safely outside of security, or will local law enforcement tell me to move along? [more inside]

Twin Cities for visiting family this July?

My wife & four kids & I will be in St. Paul for a long visit in the middle of July. What should be on our schedule -- both things new in the last few years, and time-tested favorites? I grew up in St. Paul but moved away a long time ago; we bring the kids out in the summer to spend time with family. We haven't been out in a couple of summers, so I want this one to be awesome!

Where to stay and what to do in 2 days on the North Shore in Minnesota?

We have just 2 1/2 days to visit the North Shore of Minnesota in mid-September (Thursday - Saturday). It's my my wonderful mother-in-law, husband and me. Likes: nature walks/easy hikes, great food, tours/museums, boat rides, beautiful views, bookstores. Needs: lodging with good beds (injured back healing); two bedrooms. Any suggestions for (a) where to stay, and (b) things to do? We'll be driving up from Minneapolis, so the shorter the drive the better (due to injured-back situation).
