Jump on The Light Rail For Breakfast or Lunch
The Green Line can take you end-to-end to between both downtowns, so it’s a convenient way to take in a wide swath of the Twin Cities in less than an hour.
There are plenty of opportunities and reasons to hop on and hop off (one ticket offers 2 hours of unlimited one-way rides) and if you start near the University of Minnesota campus and head east, you’ll see some of the most interesting neighborhoods in Saint Paul, cutting through Frogtown with the best immigrant cuisine along University Avenue, and then snaking all the way into Downtown.
Take the train to the end of the line and check out Union Depot’s soaring 1926 architecture, and all Lowertown has to offer including bars, restaurants, parks, minor league baseball, music venues, a vibrant artist’s district, and more.
It’s a perfect way to get your bearings and check out the lay of the land before moving on to your next adventure.
