Trip Planner USA  /  Minnesota  /  Saint Paul

Twin Cities

The capital of Minnesota, Saint Paul represents half of the "Twin Cities" and embraces the outdoors and urban culture. Theaters, a conservatory and zoo, parks, and grand sports centers attract travelers to the city bordered by the Mississippi River; the quality of these offerings gives the city its cosmopolitan vibe. In its infancy, the city was an important trading post for Native American tribes. What was dubbed the "Pig's Eye" settlement until the mid 1800s became known for a chapel built on the bluff--and the grand cathedral erected there shares the city's name.The city of nearly 300,000 is home to more than a dozen colleges and universities.

Where to stay in Saint Paul

Places to stay in St. Paul sit concentrated in the downtown area. The Lowertown Historic District, which includes some of the city's oldest buildings, makes a particularly attractive option. Hotels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts here can put you just steps from the Mississippi River, while the greater downtown area also offers apartment rentals and hostels. Staying downtown also puts you within walking distance of most of the city's prime attractions. Additionally, you'll find a handful of national-chain hotels on the east side of town near Interstate 494 / 694.
