A few weeks ago Jordan and I had the pleasure of visiting Minneapolis, MN. And although we weren’t there for long, we were able to sightsee and visit enough to enjoy the city! SuperBowl is just days away, and I wanted to share things to do in Minneapolis, MN.

I got so many recommendations on places to see and eat that it was a bit overwhelming, I can’t thank you guys enough for sending your suggestions. Wish we had enough time to visit all the of places you all recommended. I will say this, all the places we visited did not disappoint. Our whole trip was fantastic!

First off, we stayed at Hotel Ivy. This hotel was beautiful! The staff was terrific, and the location of the hotel is perfect and close to everything! Everything was a 10-minute drive. Seriously cannot recommend this hotel enough.

The first day in Minneapolis we (of course) had to visit Mall of America. This mall is AMAZING. It’s enormous (I think it has over 330 stores), and you can spend hours, on hours in there.

The reason we went to MOA was I had to visit Sigma beauty. Y’all know how much I love Sigma, it was only right to go in there and shop, ha!

After Mall of America, we went to eat at Constantine. This place was also fantastic. I loved the dark and moody vibe; it’s the perfect date night location. The drinks were terrific, and they had the best tater tots I have had in my life. No joke.

Day two of our trip we got to meet the sweetest photographer in MN. We met with Alina and got to shoot with her around town in the snow. It was FREEZING, but so much fun! Jordan and I pretty much lost all feeling in our toes, hands, and face. I can’t wait to share the pictures with yall!

For breakfast, we ate the Black Coffee and Waffle Bar. The waffle was yummy, and the coffee was also excellent!

For lunch, we ended up eating at Pizza Luce. Also, so good! The best margarita pizza I have had.

Shortly after lunch, we went to the Vikings game, and as most of you know, we had an incredible win! Holy cow, that game was amazing. I wish I could say it was the same outcome for the game against the Eagles. *womp womp*

Our quick trip to Minneapolis is probably hands down one of my favorite trips to date. Not only because Jordan and I were child-free. But, everything about the trip was fun, a part of me wishes we were going to the Super Bowl just to go back and see all the same places again.
