If you think of Mary Tyler Moore when you think of Minneapolis, you’d smile if you saw the tribute statue of her downtown throwing her beret into the air. But this Twin City is a surprisingly hip place that Travel & Leisure recently called one of its five “up and coming destinations in 2006.”
The hippest architectural landmark is the redesigned Walker Art Center. And the hottest , most fashion-forward place to stay is the Graves 601 Hotel, a “weekend place for the local uber-hip.” This historic, 22-story, 225-room hotel is located where the business, theatre and entertainment districts converge. Each room features a 42″ plasma TV, glass-etched headboards and glass pedestal wash basins. With a long list of awards for cuisine and service, don’t miss it when you’re in Minneapolis.
