Minneapolis and St. Paul—two neighboring communities separated by the mighty Mississippi—both with a burgeoning arts and cultural scene, but each a bit different. Minneapolis feels like the new kid on the block, with glittering new buildings and a fast-paced style. St. Paul, on the other hand, takes itself a little less seriously, offering an old-town ambience.
You'll have a great time in this incredibly diverse metropolis, but you won't want to travel there on your own. With more than 3 million residents sprawling out over more than 1,000 square miles, the Twin Cities can have you on the road most of the time. There's a better way to enjoy these two popular American cities—in the comfort and luxury of a charter bus from US Coachways.
When you're taking a group to the Twin Cities, there are many factors to consider, but probably few as important as your choice of transportation. Let's face it—if there are problems getting there and back, that's probably what people will remember most. That's why you want to choose a charter bus rental:

The Twin Cities are one of the most culturally diverse communities in the country, with many strong immigrant populations, including large Somali, Hmong, Asian and Latino influences. That makes for a culinary scene unlike any you'll find anywhere—enjoy Cambodian, Ecuadorian, Malaysian, Afghani, Czech, Dutch, Korean, Turkish, Tibetan and Ukrainian, among many other ethnic cuisines.
That diversity also shows up in the music and arts in the Twin Cities. Minneapolis-St.Paul is considered by many to be the "Music City" of the Midwest. It's a breeding ground for musicians of all genres, from Dylan to Prince, but it's also one of the top destinations in the country for touring musicians. With dozens of mid-to-large sized venues and just as many small clubs, the cities offer musical entertainment to fit any taste. Among the cities' legendary venues are First Avenue (known to locals as "First Ave"), the Dakota Jazz Club, the Orpheum, the State Theater, the Cedar Cultural Center (for world music), the Fitz (where Prairie Home Companion was produced for most of its existence) and the Xcel Energy Center, home to stadium concerts.
There's also much in the Twin Cities for patrons of the visual arts, from the Minneapolis Institute of Art and the Weisman Art Museum to the Walker Art Center, with its famous outdoor sculpture garden. The Guthrie Theatre in downtown Minneapolis has long been a beacon on the American theatre scene and the Ordway in St. Paul hosts touring Broadway show.
Of course, the Mall of America (formerly the home of the Minnesota Twins) is here, located in the southern suburbs of the cities. With more than 500 stores over four stories, it also houses dozens of restaurants, and has hosted concerts and even a hockey game. There's no sales tax on clothing in Minnesota, so bring an extra suitcase!
For a real one-of-a-kind experience, come to the Twin Cities in the summer, when the Minnesota State Fair is on. One of the country's largest state fairs, with its own dedicated fairgrounds, it offers everything from live concerts to cooking competitions to some of the most unusual food you'll ever eat—ever tried deep fried cheese curds or alligator on a stick? There are amusement park rides, as well as a life-sized sculpture of the Minnesota State Fair Queen, carved out of butter!
There's no question about it—a charter bus is the smart way to travel to Minneapolis-St. Paul. But one of the benefits of charter is the options you have—it's important to take the time to make certain you have the right coach for your group.
At US Coachways, we have access to the largest fleet of charter buses in the nation. We'll work closely with you to find the ideal coach for your group, looking at all the details of your trip. We'll help you reserve a bus that has plenty of room for all your participants, but doesn't have any wasted space. We'll also consider any special needs of your group.
If you're traveling with a mid-sized group, we'll probably recommend the mini-bus. It has seating for 24 to 35 and plenty of room for your personal items. Larger groups find the full-sized bus to be optimal, with accommodations for up to 57. Multiple bus rentals are an option.
Most charter buses come with standard amenities, such as Wifi, stereo/PA systems, DVD players and charging stations for your devices. Additional features, including on-board bathrooms, are available on a limited basis. Check with your booking agent to determine what's available.
All the great features that make a charter bus an outstanding option for group travel make it well-suited for any type of outing, including:
