SAINT PAUL, Minn. (April 2, 2020) – Visit Saint Paul recently launched the Saint Paul from Home microsite, loaded with ways to experience and connect with Minnesota’s capital city from the safety and comfort of home.
“We know life seems abnormal right now and people are searching for things to do while practicing social distancing,” said Visit Saint Paul President & CEO Terry Mattson. “That’s why we put this microsite together to offer people activities, learning opportunities, connection with the places they know and love, and even the much-needed distraction.”
Go to www.visitsaintpaul.com/saintpaulfromhome to check out the microsite, which includes:
- VirtualTours & Digital Experiences such as the Hmong Cultural Center’s online exhibit, DNR’s EagleCam, virtual tour of the Minnesota Governor’s Residence and more.
- Saint Paul via Google 360. Visit Saint Paul partnered with Google Maps to document some of the most iconic and interesting areas of the city not accessible by Google Street View, including Como Zoo, CHS Field, Historic Fort Snelling, the Mississippi River and more.
- STP Activity Pack — a collection of stay-at-home activities and learning opportunities from Visit Saint Paul and partners such as coloring pages, word searches, educational videos and so much more.
- Listen & Watch section that includes different Saint Paul-related music, podcasts, video and movie suggestions. Watch a full-length performance by the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, read about what movies have been filmed in Saint Paul and more.
- List of restaurants and breweries as well as retail offering curbside pickup, takeout, delivery and other specials with more than 100 restaurants and more than 30 retail locations included.
- Get Outdoors section highlighting parks, trails, public art and more for people to experience while practicing social distancing. Find the sidewalk poetry nearest to you, take a mural tour, explore a park, find the best outdoor Instagram locations and more.
