The striking home of the Minnesota Vikings is a must-see for any football fan.
U.S. Bank Stadium joined the Downtown Minneapolis skyline in July 2016 as the new home of the Minnesota Vikings National Football League team. The massive, angular glass structure has seven levels, 66,200 seats, two of the largest HD video boards in the NFL and a museum-quality art collection. The stadium will host Super Bowl LII in 2018, as well as non-football events, including concerts by the world’s biggest stars.
- Washington Avenue. This north-south thoroughfare features some of Minneapolis’ best bars, restaurants and neighborhoods. Head north and you’ll wind up in the North Loop, one of the trendiest spots in the city to enjoy a cocktail. Go south and you’ll wind up at Seven Corners, home to great dive bars, restaurants and the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities’ West Bank campus.
- I-35W Bridge Memorial. On August 1, 2007, one of the most heavily trafficked bridges in Minnesota collapsed. Thirteen people were killed and 145 were injured. Also known as the Remembrance Garden, the memorial was completed in 2011 and features 13 steel beams—one for each person killed in the collapse. Behind the beams is a black granite wall inscribed with the names of the survivors.
- Guthrie Theater. Blocks from the stadium stands this internationally renowned theater dedicated to old classics and bold new works.
