When it comes to world-class Midwest cities, Chicago handily trounces the competition (not that we're biased). But Minneapolis-St. Paul exudes its own kind of quiet cool, and we don't just mean the weather. Dispatched by bus, train, car and plane, four writers discovered that the sleek new Twins stadium, chic restaurants and bars (and legal food trucks!), jaw-dropping art and architecture, vibrant music scene and more outdoor activities than you can shake a stick at (or food on a stick) make the Twin Cities well worth a weekend jaunt. And you know what? The weather was pretty pleasant (except for that brief snow shower).
