Saint Paul is the capital of Minnesota and together with Minneapolis it forms the â€œTwin Citiesâ€. Both cities offer a lot of places to visit but staying in St. Paul means saving money on accommodation since cheap hotels in St. Paul are very easy to find.
Walk along Summit Avenue to see the incredible historic mansions. The neighborhood also has ties with writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. Some of the mansions can be visited for a small fee. If you are in the mood for shopping, walk along Grand Avenue (runs parallel with Summit). The Wabasha Street Caves used to be the home of gangsters in the 1920s but now can be visited by tourists. There are also plenty of festivals to check out during the year.
When looking for cheap hotels in St. Paul it only makes sense to stay as close to downtown as possible, especially since the public transport is not the most reliable. If you come by car though, you can choose one of the inexpensive inns close to the highway.
Some of the budget places to check out in St. Paul include: La Quinta Inn St. Paul (close to downtown and shopping centers, free breakfast, free wi-fi, free parking, coffee maker, microwave, fridge), Hilton Garden Inn St Paul City Center (downtown, 251 rooms, microwave, fridge, free wi-fi, indoor pool) and Best Western Kelly Inn (city center, coffee maker, pets allowed, pool, restaurant, internet).
