We're planning to fly into MSP in mid-August, and drive west to a couple of the national parks. We are trying to schedule a few days in the city to start, before we have to start paying for the rental car, and to catch a Twins game. Our girls (12 and 9) are insisting on a day at the mall, but it doesn't matter which end of the trip. We are thinking of staying in downtown to be close to the ballpark, and then staying out by the MOA when we return in a couple of weeks.
Any suggestions for hotels downtown that are kid-friendly, and won't be too burdensome to drag our lugguage on public transportation? Will it be a problem to get tickets to a Thursday or Friday night game? Thanks so much!
