Despite ongoing rebranding efforts, Downtown East is famous among locals for one big thing: the U.S. Bank Stadium, the home of the beloved Minnesota Vikings. There's plenty to do on non-game days — the Guthrie Theater leads the city's excellent performing arts scene, the Mill City Museum draws history buffs, and waterfront parks offer views of the Stone Arch Bridge and ruined flour mills. Nearby, you'll find sushi spots and craft breweries. What's not to love?
