Via the light rail, which is a short 4 block walk from this home, you have access all of the major sports, concert and special event stadiums the Twin Cities have to offer--US Bank Stadium (Vikings), Target Field (Twins), Xcel Center (Wild), Target Center (Timberwolves), TCF Stadium or Marinucci Arena or Williams Arena (Gophers). Starbucks is at the end of the block, and within 4 blocks, on "happening" Selby Avenue, is Whole Foods, O'Gara's and many great restaurants, bars and shops. If you prefer to navigate by vehicle, you are just 1 ½ blocks to Interstate 94, which will carry you east or west between Minneapolis and St. Paul.
