Planning a trip to Minneapolis as a solo traveler, couple or family? I have the most up to date breakdown of the best Airbnbs in Minneapolis that’ll be perfect for you! 

Sharing the Mississippi River with its super close neighbor – St Paul – Minneapolis is part of what is most commonly referred to as “The Twin Cities”. And while it’s often bundled together with its neighbor when discussed, the urban landscape of Minneapolis deserves credit all of its own.

Airbnbs In Minneapolis

 

Minneapolis is home to just under half a million “Minneapolitans”, and is an underrated sporting, shopping and foodie hub.

I’ve compiled the ultimate list of the best Minneapolis Airbnb’s to choose from, that are guaranteed to be the cherry on top of a brilliant trip to the Twin City.

I’m a native of Minneapolis but had never explored the Standish neighborhood before. We thoroughly enjoyed it! If you’re in the mood for burgers, Del Gordo’s Hamburguesas on 42nd and Cedar blew us away. We’ll definitely look to stay here again next time we’re up in the Twin Cities!” – Susanne
