Memorable City, MinneapolisWith the dog days of summer quickly approaching, there are few better places to visit than this month’s Memorable City.  Minneapolis is a great city to escape the hot and humid mid-west summer days. With its cool days, and cooler nights (the average summer time temperature is 82 degrees), Minneapolis is a great place to go to enjoy fall-like climate in the summer.

A few things that most people don't realize about Minneapolis (at least I didn’t) include the fact that the state boasts over 90,000 miles of shoreline. That’s a lot of beach space! And that one in six people own a boat (with all those beaches, it only makes sense). And per capita, Minneapolis has more golfers than any other U.S. city. For all you dieters out there, you can thank (or blame) Minneapolis for giving birth to rice cakes (yum!).

A few more facts about Minneapolis include:

  • The birthplace of the modern Better Business Bureau (1912)
  • Home to 19 Fortune 500 companies
  • Home to third largest theatre market in U.S. (behind New York and Chicago)
  • The Mall of America is the size of 78 football fields (wear some comfortable shoes)
  • The unique skyway system connects 52 blocks of downtown, making it possible to live, eat, work, and shop without ever having to go outside (Thank goodness. The winters are a bit on the chilly side with average temperatures in the twenties)

Now, for those of you interested in seeing a list of activities to enjoy . . .

What Do Our Clients Say?

I have been working with TravelPlex for many years and I must say it has been a refreshing experience. Our travel needs often require instantaneous service, and they are always there for us. TravelPlex offers us great personal service, great pricing and a 24/7 hotline. To me, THAT equals a hat trick!


We’ve been with TravelPlex for over 20 years. The lone exception is when we left them for (a mega travel agency). It took us about a year before we realized that the personal service and attention that the TravelPlex staff just wasn’t there with (the mega agency). Neither was the savings (the mega agency) promised. We were so low on the totem pole that we were lucky if we ever had anyone contact us. But at TravelPlex, the staff always goes above and beyond to make sure we get the best prices and that our travelers are always taken care of. TravelPlex makes all our travelers feel like VIP’s, and that’s important – and rare!

Carrie Willard is the reason I keep coming back to Travelplex. She is "WONDERFUL". She is always so helpful and goes the extra step to make sure everything is satisfactory and done the way the customer wants it. She always has a smile on her face, which is even apparent over the phone. I have entrusted our vacations with Carrie now for 3yrs and could never imagine using anyone else to help us plan our trips. I have referred at least 5 of my friends to her, and they all have had nothing but glowing remarks about Carrie. She is an asset to your company and exemplifies the true meaning of "CUSTOMER SERVICE".
