Saint Paul

SAINT PAUL - Saint Paul is Minnesota’s capital city and the older “twin” of Minneapolis by 13 years. Together, they make up the Twin Cities. It doesn’t want to be like any other place in the world and it isn’t. These cities, as far as twins go, are like Schwarzenegger and DeVito - some have said Minneapolis is an Appletini, and Saint Paul is a fine Scotch.

Speaking of Scotch, Saint Paul is home to 3M, makers of Scotch Tape™, a gangster history that includes police shootouts with John Dillinger, a flourishing craft beer scene and Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion. I bet you’ve never seen Post-it Notes, Dillinger, craft beer and Garrison Keillor in the same sentence, but that’s just the beginning of what makes Saint Paul special.

Iconic brands? I’m sure you’ve heard of Target or Best Buy? Both of these billion dollar companies trace their first stores to Saint Paul. Additionally, 3M, Kemps, JW Hulme (check out their bags at Barney’s in New York) and Pearson’s Candy all call Saint Paul home.

Naturally, Saint Paul is the capital city of the headwaters state of the iconic Mississippi River. We have more miles of riverfront – 26 - than any other city on the entire stretch of the river. Not to mention those miles of riverfront are lined with biking trails and eagle’s nests. You might say we are a city with nature. And we could provide you with an image gallery as wide, deep and long as the Mississippi River, to prove it.

Finally, it was the fifth floor of our iconic Landmark Center where Minnesota congressman Andrew Volstead led the local office of the Prohibition Bureau. If his name sounds familiar, there’s a good reason for that — he’s the fella who wrote the Prohibition Act. But that’s so 1919 - we’ll have an ice cold Summit Extra Pale Ale waiting – it’s been a staple for craft brew enthusiasts in Saint Paul since 1986. So there’s a snapshot of Minnesota’s capital city. We’re proud of who we are. We don’t want to be like any other place in the world and we really aren’t.

Saint Paul

SAINT PAUL - Saint Paul is Minnesota’s capital city and the older “twin” of Minneapolis by 13 years. Together, they make up the Twin Cities. It doesn’t want to be like any other place in the world and it isn’t.
