Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
THE INSIDERS' GUIDE TO THE TWIN CITIES, 5TH EDITION is a wonderful book that describes not only the urban neighborhoods in Minneapolis and St. Paul, but many of the suburbs as well (although it does manage to miss close-in ones such as Golden Valley and Edina), as well as the many shopping and dining experiences available in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, including the humongous Mall Of America and some of the smaller record stores and book stores. Overall, this book shows the Twin Cities to be an ethnically diverse area, with a vibrant mix of people and places, including several colleges (the University Of Minnesota being the largest and best-known). This is a wonderful reference book as well as a great guidebook.

This book is full of useful inoformation. As with any book of this nature some of it is going to be out of date before printing but most everything that remains is useful and helpful.

(These comments are on the 4th edition: I hope the 5th is better!)

Finally, a guide book designed to prevent visitors from going places and seeing things! Sancho and I bring the book out to the car, which we'd parked downtown, and open to a page that says "it's next to impossible to find a place to park downtown". Now that's what I'm talking about! Next we decide to go to the Weissman Art Museum, which--according to the book--is located by the banks of the Mississippi river on the U of Minn. campus. However, since we're visitors READING A GUIDE BOOK, we don't know where the river or the U. of Minn. are... No problem, we just look up U of Minn, and the book tells us the campus is near Dinkytown by the river. Undeterred, we look up Dinkytown, and it's carefully described as "near the Weissman Art Museum". OK, I'm making that up, it actually says it's "near the University of Minnesota", but you get the picture. And oh, the maps are basically jig-saw puzzle pieces with no uber-image to let you know what section of the city is being mapped. And no, there's no "Dinkytown" on any map, nor ANY of the neighborhood names sprinkled throughout the text. There were two U of Minn. campuses shown, however, so naturally you'll go to the wrong one. Terrific fun!
