Minneapolis Residents Please Help

Hi everyone,

My name is Simon and in a few short weeks my wife and I will be travelling from Australia to come and stay in Minneapolis from Nov 2 - 5. I have one day spare where i'd really like to see the main parts of Minneapolis/St Pauls area. We are already doing plenty of Prince things in the first couple of days but on Saturday Nov 4 we really want to see some of the Minneapolis/St Paul area to just get a taste of this wonderful city. We have looked into many city tours and sadly it seems because it's the first week of November all the tours seem to have shut down. The only thing we can find is expensive private limo tours. Would anyone who lives in Minneapolis be able to reach out and let me know of a good way to have a look around Minneapolis/St paul area preferably via car/bus for a few hours. We really wanted to do the Grayline award winning city tour but they shut down the last week of October. But something similar to that would be amazing. Crikies at this stage I'd be prepared to pay anyone a fee to just show us around for a few hours. The private limo companies want 250 to 300 dollars which for a couple of hours we just arent prepared to pay. So any suggestions/help on this situation would be greatly apreciated. I hope to hear from you asap. Thanks So Much. Simon. Brisbane ,Australia

Hey! Just got back from Paisley Park and doin all things Prince. I will say rent a car and rent a bike and explore Minneapolis. The bike rentals are on just about every corner. Just enter your card info and you can have a bike for $12.00 dollars for 24 hours. Construct a list of all the Princely spots and you will see the beautiful city, parks, eateries and night scene along the way. The people are super duper nice! There are parks, bike trails and lakes everywhere. Make sure to do the VIP tour at Paisley Park to get your picture in the studio. You can tour the city at your leisure.
