The Minnesota State Fair is the second largest fair in the U.S., which means that there are a lot of people. Massive crowds coupled with 90 degree August heat can be taxing. I recommend going earlier in the day when it is cooler and people are still arriving. Also, parking will be nearly impossible. The best thing to do is to park at the Rainbow Grocery that is a few blocks south of the fair grounds and then take the 84 bus to the fair. It's a straight shot and costs $2.25 during commuter times (7-10am) and then (3-6pm) off peak times it's $1.75. Must have exact change.
