Cheap Flights to Minnesota - find airline deals with Skyscanner

“Minnesota nice” is a real phenomenon, and from the minute you step foot in this state, you’ll be wrapped up in the smiling welcome of its people. Its landscape is vast, varied, and largely untouched. It’s the perfect place for you if want to lose yourself in nature. If you like things a little less wild, the Twin Cities are bastions of commerce and culture.

Flights to Minnesota

Minnesota’s main airport is the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport (MSP). Located within ten miles of each city, this is where most visitors to the state arrive. It is a major hub for Delta and Sun Country airlines and is a busy place, with almost 34 million passengers making their way through each year. If you’re traveling domestically, smaller airports around the state make it possible to easily book flights to Minnesota’s other regions, including Duluth (DLH) and Rochester (RST).

What to do in Minnesota

Most people who come here come for the wilderness. Canoe along the waterways braved by famous adventurers in Voyageur’s National Park or explore the winding paths of the North Country National Scenic Trail. Feast your eyes on the glories of the autumn colors in Maplewood State Park, or drift quietly to the call of loons and the cry of the wolves in the Border Waters.

When you decide it’s time to rejoin civilization, Minnesota’s Twin Cities are bustling with activity and a genial friendliness that extends to visitors. St. Paul is home to the world-class Minnesota Children’s Museum, while the Minneapolis Institute of Arts houses 80,000 works spanning 5000 years. In the suburb of Bloomington, The Mall of America welcomes 40 million visitors each year, who come to stroll, shop, enjoy the indoor theme park, and take in the spectacle of commerce.

Advice to Tourists Visiting Minnesota

The northernmost tip of the lower 48 states is located here, so you can guess what winter is like. Almost 40 inches of snowfall each year, and the temperature rarely rises above freezing. Summertime is your best bet, and the months between June and August are packed with festivals where the agricultural legacy of the state and its Scandinavian heritage are celebrated with infectious gusto. Temperatures hover around 80 degrees.
