Format: Paperback
I've lived in the Cities for 13 years and worked in downtown St. Paul for eight years. I used to take 2-3 mile lunchtime walks with a friend over lunch almost every weekday and I thought I knew the downtown area pretty well. After doing a couple of the St. Paul walks recommended in Walking Twin Cities, I realized that I'd been missing out on many of the coolest places in the city for all these years. I don't get to Minneapolis as often as I should and this book is going to provide inspiration to know that city better, too.

The combination of scenic and safe routes, historic context, great photography that points you to the landmarks, and solid recommendations for places to visit, eat, and relax makes this book an invaluable reference for anyone new to or familiar with the great cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis, MN. It's the perfect size for stuffing into a purse or backpack, too. I've only had my copy for a couple of weeks and it's looking pretty used. If you're looking for an excuse to walk off some winter weight, you could do worse than to use Walking Twin Cities as a personal trainer. Do three of these walks a week and get fit. Many of the routes are winter-friendly, too, including skyway walks in both cities.

Descriptions are too basic for the newcomer. Would have loved to see more details and pictures and background of the walking area.
