Whether the home team is winning or losing, Downton's new Twins Stadium (aka Target Field) hosts throngs of fans throughout baseball season. With 150 days of events, parades and celebrations per year, downtown Minneapolis mixes business with pleasure. Downtown packs local flavor, with locally owned shops and restaurants edging out the big chains. Other Downtown attractions include the architecturally striking Central Library, the famous lookout at Foshay Tower, Loring Park and colorful theaters on Hennepin Avenue.
