TCL Reporter Emily Engberg travels a lot for fun and for work. She says if you’re heading to Minneapolis Saint Paul Airport for an upcoming trip, go early. Emily says there are plenty of places to hang out and relax before your flight. MSP is special because of what it offers. In fact, for the second year in a row, it has been named the best airport in North America for its size. Here are Emily’s picks for food, fashion and fun at MSP.
Stone Arch celebrates the craft beer scene in Minnesota. It also pairs its menu with the beer of the season. The Craft Lab features specialty brews and allows you to talk to a local brewer.
Uptown Minnesota is a locally owned boutique that features local and handmade gifts and jewelry. Emily says it’s her favorite spot to visit in MSP.
Golf fans will love this spot. It has golf simulators, gear, a full kitchen and a putt-around lounge. It also recently became a Priority Pass Lounge.
Get a visit with a chiropractor at the airport right before your flight. It’s a new concept and it’s already expanding to another airport. Soon it will be in Atlanta.
On Friday, March 23rd and 30th, the Minnesota Zoo will be at MSP. Travelers will get to learn about some animals that will be at the airport from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day. It’s a great way to be entertained before you hop on a plane. To learn more about Minnesota Zoo, click here.
