Search the best hotels in Minnesota
Taking its name from the Dakota word for ‘clear blue water’, the vast and beautiful state of Minnesota is studded with more than 11,000 lakes, perfect for fans of the great outdoors. Famously liberal, the state’s cities brim with cool cultural attractions, too. With accommodation options ranging from cosy B&Bs to luxurious lakeside lodges fit for a whole host of tastes and budgets, our list of the best places to stay in Minnesota promises something special for everyone.
You’ll find most of the urban action in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St Paul, home to fabulous food, art and museums. Whether you’re exploring as a couple or with friends and family, these hubs are an ideal starting place for a sense of modern Minnesota. Highlights for art lovers in Minneapolis include the Minneapolis Institute of the Arts, the Walker Art Center and the Weisman Art Museum. Head to St Paul for the Minnesota History Centre, the Minnesota State Capitol, the soaring Cathedral of Saint Paul and Fort Snelling. Hip Duluth, an intriguing port city, has also become increasingly popular.
Beyond the cities, you’ll find historic small towns — riverside Stillwater and Red Wing are particular favourites — as well as the expansive prairies and woodlands which have long inspired writers and musicians. Venture to sparkling lakes for kayaking, canoeing, sailing, fishing and wild swimming, or go hiking, horse riding and mountain biking in the pine and birch-covered hills. Admire Lake Superior from the dramatic Tettegouche State Park, hike to High Falls in Grand Portage State Park, brave the rapids at Banning State Park, or spot bison amidst the prairie wildflowers as you rock climb in Blue Mounds State Park. This is certainly a state for adventurers.
Whatever you choose to discover, you can expect a warm welcome at the best places to stay in Minnesota, which pride themselves on their friendliness!
