Minnesota Car Rental

Head up north for your next vacation and check out beautiful Minnesota and its many attractions. Reserve your Minnesota rental car today to make traveling around the state and its most popular cities a breeze.

Ready to take on a challenge? Visit the eight bridges located along the Mississippi river. The architectural differences and scenic views will let you discover the historic culture of the city and see it from all different angles. While you’re hopping from bridge to bridge, make sure you check out the only waterfall on the Mississippi River while you're at the St. Anthony Falls dam.

One of the can't-miss attractions in this metro area is the Mall of America, located in the suburb of Bloomington! If you love to shop, definitely plan on spending an entire day at one of the largest malls in the United States. Park your rental and take a short train ride to Bloomington on the Hiawatha Light Rail for the ultimate shopping experience. The Mall of America consists of:

  • 520 stores
  • More than 50 restaurants,
  • Home to Nickelodeon Universe.

One of the best perks of shopping at the Mall of America is that the state does not charge sales tax on clothing! Hopefully you brought a spare bag to carry your new wardrobe home with you!

Discover The Historic City of St. Paul  
Another notable city in Minnesota is St. Paul. Travel downtown, and discover the amazing arts and entertainment venues the city has to offer. The Fitzgerald Theater hosts a variety of performances throughout the year, including dance, concerts, and play productions. The Fitzgerald Theater is also the oldest surviving arts building, and dates back to 1910. 

Head over to St. Paul's historic Landmark Center in your Minnesota rental car, and walk around the AAW Gallery of Wood Art. The exhibits include contemporary wood works, as well as educational and vintage exhibits. 

If you're vacationing in St. Paul during the summer months, the State of Minnesota's Centennial Showboat is one of the most popular St. Paul attractions. The showboat is permanently docked along the Mississippi River, so you don't have to worry about motion sickness. While you're on board, you'll be treated to an interactive style of theater. Be prepared to hear great music, witness old-time vaudeville traditions and laugh, a lot.
