Most of East Lansing (and Mid-Michigan) will be heading to Minneapolis this weekend for the big basketball game against Texas Tech and while you're in Minneapolis, you might want to know some fun stuff the city has to offer. According to the Meet Minneapolis website, here are some interesting things you might want to know about the city:

  • The skyway system connects roughly 80 city blocks "without stepping a toe outdoors"
  • The Top 5 Instagramable photo spots in Minneapolis include: First Avenue, the Mary Tyler Moore State, Minnehaha Falls, the Spoonbridge and Cherry and the Stone Arch Bridge
  • You can walk and bike along the Mississippi River by day (which is close to the U.S. Bank Stadium) and celebrate at night on Nicollet at the Tip-Off Tailgate

The city has put together a page to help you prepare for all the fun in Minneapolis this weekend for the big basketball game.
