While you are coming for Spurs, there is much more that you can do outside of the Spurs related activities that we have planned. Here is a basic guide to help you find some non-soccer entertainment as well as help you find some great places to eat or drink. Scroll all the way down for bars, restaurants, lakes, parks and just general things to do.
If you want the big leagues and want to cross Target Field of your Major League Ballpark visit list. The Twins have a home series against the Cleveland Indians July 30, 31st (skip that one), and August 1st.
St. Paul Saints
Wanna go see some baseball that is unique, fun and very affordable? Known for their “unique” game promotions and mid inning antics, Go to a St. Paul Saints game at CHS Field in St. Paul. Depending on when you plan to arrive there is a home stand from July 25th-July 29th. You might even run into part owner Bill Murray if he is in town.
Land of 10,000 Drinks
The Twin Cities has a lot of great craft breweries to try out while you are in town. Everyone knows the big guys like Summit, Fulton and Surly Brewing Co., but make sure to check out smaller favorites like Dangerous Man Brewing, Bauhaus Brewing, 612 Brew, Fair State, and many, many more. Thanks to the good people at The Growler, Check out this interactive brewery and distillery map for all the rest. It even shows you distilleries if you prefer spirits.
No matter what I put here, someone will complain about leaving places out. So I will leave it up to MPLS/St. Paul Magazine to help you find something you might be into. (Pictured - Psycho Suzi's Motor Lounge patio)

Parks & Lakes
Minneapolis has many great parks and lakes within the city. You can go to Mde Maka Ska (The Lake Formerly Know As Lake Calhoun) and enjoy it's beaches, running path and rent paddle boards, canoes and kayaks. Or visit Minnehaha Park and hike along it's trails and see the falls. If you feel like getting your history on make a visit to Historic Fort Snelling & Mississippi National River and Recreation Area
