Discover St. Paul — the arts and culture capital of the Midwest — and experience the intimate charm of this savvy capital city. From welcoming, tree-lined neighborhoods to the superb architecture of the State Capitol and St. Paul’s Cathedral, be mesmerized by the city’s tumultuous, Prohibition-era gangster history and its rise to political prowess. Traverse the renowned skywalks, explore the city of F. Scott Fitzgerald, experience one of the largest interactive history centers in the U.S. and tread Summit Avenue among lavish homes built by railroad and lumber barons.


• Explore the exquisite and historically rich Minnesota State Capitol, known as one of the most beautiful Capitols in the U.S.
• Discover the treasure of architecturally-rich Summit Avenue, the longest expanse of Victorian homes in the U.S.
• Marvel at the stunning view of St. Paul from the exquisite Saint Paul Cathedral, where you admire treasures of art, history and Beaux Arts architecture.
