As the host of this year’s Super Bowl, all eyes are on Minneapolis, Minnesota. But there’s far more to the city than sports, sub-zero temps, and one very big mall. Culture-wise, you can’t beat the Walker Art Center. One of the country’s leading contemporary art institutions, it also features a sculpture garden with the photo-friendly Spoonbridge and Cherry by Claes Oldenburg. And no visit would be complete without a stop at the legendary nightclub First Avenue, where Prince performed countless times and filmed Purple Rain. Need a place to unwind? You won’t find chicer accommodations than the Hewing Hotel in the buzzy North Loop. As for eating and drinking, well, that comes easily, thanks to these six spots. We’ve also included a couple fan-friendly bars, in case you couldn’t nab tickets to the U.S. Bank Stadium. (Watching the game at home? Here’s your guide.)
