“Here's where you find the big events”
Review of Xcel Energy Center

Xcel Energy Center
Ranked #5 of 130 things to do in Saint Paul
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Perched on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River, the Xcel Energy Center is where the big stars put on concerts in St. Paul and it's home to the Minnesota Wild and Minnesota Swarm. Frequent events are held here like the American Craft Council exhibit in April 2014. The event was a juried art fair with craftsmen from across the nation exhibiting exceptional products. If you're visiting St. Paul, check out the Excel Center.

The Xcel Center has so many positives. Here are some highlights-
1) Incredible views- the seats are so close to the action compared to other arenas. Second deck hockey seats almost hover over the action.
2) Looks classy. Wherever you are in the arena, floor, seats, aisles, concourses, entry; the Excel Center has dark colors and accents, and great lighting. You never feel like you are in an arena, but more like a high end bistro.
3) Interesting food- You can always find something good to eat. Wander all through the concourse for the most variety.
4) Longest escalator ride in MN.

I am a Pittsburgh Penguins STH, and made it to Xcel for the April 2014 Wild - Pens game. Everything other than the Penguins performance on the ice was outstanding. The sightlines are good form anywhere. The "Minnie donuts: for $5 were a great concession.
