Radisson Blu hotels provide a luxurious and comfortable base for any family getaway. Read on to explore all that Minneapolis has to offer, and enjoy a sporting break with the family! We’ve partnered with golf coach Jordan Fuller to bring you this guide. As a passionate traveler for golf and with his own site, he has lots of tips to share in the world of golf.
Radisson Blu Minneapolis Downtown
On the shores of the Mississippi, near the border of Wisconsin are the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. In the heart of downtown Minneapolis is Radisson Blu Minneapolis Downtown, the perfect location for all sports fans. There are four professional sports team arenas - representing all four major U.S. sports – within walking distance or just a short ride from this downtown hotel.
Minneapolis is also known for its excellent food. Heading towards the Mississippi River, the density of restaurants increases dramatically. Alongside many great restaurants for dining out, experience a true taste of Minnesota at FireLake Grill House & Cocktail Bar right at the hotel, or ask the Concierge for a personalized recommendation.
Downtown Golf In Minneapolis
A short 10-minute drive from the Radisson Blu Minneapolis Downtown is the Theodore Wirth Golf Club. Opened in 1916, the original course was only nine holes but has since evolved into a large part of Theodore Wirth Regional Park with a full eighteen hole course and disc golf course, great for newbies and skilled players alike. The length of the course is a manageable 6400 yards making it playable for golfers of any calibre. The backdrop of this course has several holes even with downtown Minneapolis in the background.
Radisson Blu Mall of America
Minnesota is famous for the shopping extravaganza called Mall of America ®. Over 500 stores populate this loaded mall for a full top to bottom shopping experience. Regardless of the weather, the Radisson Blu Mall of America is connected directly to the mall so you won’t have to brave the elements! It’s always 70 and sunny in the mall! If your family wants to do some fun golfing on their trip to Minneapolis, there are two miniature golf courses located inside the mall. Moose Mountain Adventure miniature golf course is great for kids and parents to enjoy, or try something unique and experience The Rock of Ages Black Light mini golf - a very fun experience where you get to golf in the dark!
Golfers looking to get out and play a few holes can visit the Hiawatha Golf Course, just 10 minutes north of Radisson Blu Mall of America by car. From the back tees, the distance is 6600 yards and golfers can choose to play nine or eighteen holes. The course is part of the Nokomis-Hiawatha Regional Park near Lake Hiawatha. During several holes, Lake Hiawatha comes into play making it difficult for many golfers. A full service restaurant and clubhouse make this a great destination for drinks and lunch.
The mall also has no shortage of food, entertainment, and shopping. Be sure to prepare a long weekend to explore all that the Mall of America has to offer. For families, enjoy Nickelodeon Universe or name and wrap your own crayon at the Crayola Experience. There is the SeaLife aquarium and many rides including roller coasters, a Ferris wheel, a carousel and much more inside the mall itself!
