Minneapolis is more than just the Mall of America. It's the new gay mecca of the Midwest. Whether you’re in town for the winter and enjoying a Holidazzle Parade, or want to catch the live and vibrant music scene downtown, we can guide you to the best restaurants, bars, shops, and parks in gay Minneapolis. The Warehouse District is great for late night clubbers. Or if you want to commute by light-rail, head downtown to the Walker Art Center which is free Thursday nights. Gay Minneapolis isn't just about a marriage license anymore. It's about food, culture, and fun in the heart of the Midwest. And who else to better guide you through the burgeoning scene than Out Traveler, who chose it as the gayest city in America in 2011.
