The best things to do in downtown Minneapolis are on our doorstep at the Radisson RED

Historic attractions meet contemporary culture in Downtown East, one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in Minneapolis and home to the Mill District. Wander through atmospheric Mill Ruins Park, three blocks from our Radisson RED, or see a show at the Guthrie Theater in ultra-modern digs designed by starchitect Jean Nouvel. Visiting for a Vikings game? Don your Helga hat and saunter over to U.S. Bank Stadium with time to spare before kickoff. We’re also near Target Field if seeing the Twins is on your list of things to do. You can check out craft breweries and locally curated boutiques in the North Loop and Warehouse District or tap into the legendary music scene at venues like First Avenue, which featured in Prince’s film Purple Rain. If you need to sleep in the next day, we won’t judge—our studios have blackout shades to help you get some quality z’s.
