Get away from it all without going too far!

Twin Cities Gateway logo

The Twin Cities Gateway is a travel destination like no other in Minnesota. The Twin Cities Gateway is a group of nine communities adjacent to Minneapolis and St. Paul, located on the northern edge of the Twin Cities. The Twin Cities Gateway offers easy access to all the fun and excitement of metropolitan life while retaining a small-town charm and a sense of community.

Take in a Twins or Vikings game by travel just minutes to Minneapolis; enjoy a concert, Minnesota Wild game, or museum visit with travel to St. Paul just a few miles away and then retreat to the peace, quiet, and comfort of the Twin Cities Gateway communities. This is what Twin Cities tourism offers you.

If you’re from Minneapolis or St. Paul, enjoy a quick Twin Cities weekend getaway by looking no further than the Twin Cities Gateway. You’ll find world-class golf, abundant recreational opportunities, stunning natural surroundings, and quality accommodations to fit any budget, all in a friendly and fun environment far removed from the stresses of urban living.

In short, we offer the best of both worlds – urban activities, outdoor recreation, and small-town charm. What more could you ask for your next vacation or getaway?
