One long-time attraction at the Minnesota State Fair is the area known as Heritage Square. It’s a more old-fashioned kind of entertainment, with historical exhibits, a newspaper museum, and various shops and food outlets. This may be the last year for Heritage Square as it is now; plans are being discussed to tear it down and create a transit hub instead.
It’s kind of impossible to go anywhere in the cities without bumping into art or a museum display of some sort.

Just south of downtown Minneapolis, past the Stevens Square neighborhood is the Washburn-Fair Oaks Mansion district. There is a central neighborhood park full of large mature trees, and the surrounding neighborhood is home to quiet, stately houses.
We’re lucky here in the Twin Cities because, to put it simply, there are a ton of art galleries here. And because of the variety of art available, much of it is affordable for almost everyone.
