Renting an Alamo hire car to pick up in Minnesota is hassle-free, and you have the opportunity to select a model to meet you and your family or party's needs. It is the most convenient and economical way to travel while you are enjoying your holiday.
If you're looking for a holiday where the locals are lovely and friendly, the scenery is inspiring and beautiful, and where you and your family can do lots of outdoor recreation, alternated with visits to impressive shopping centres and excellent, good-value restaurants, Minnesota is the US state for you.
It might be reputed to have 10,000 lakes, but Minnesota also has a few sizeable towns where you can get some seriously reasonably priced hotel rooms, enormous plates of food, and great entertainment. Whether you prefer art galleries, such as the Walker Art Centre in Minneapolis, or live music and shopping, the twin cities of Minneapolis-St. Paul have oodles of things for you to see and do.
On the other hand, if canoeing hundreds of miles of waterways, or hiking and cycling appeals to you more, you can pretty much have your canoe and eat it. Minnesota's Boundary Waters consists of 1,200 miles of lakes and rivers, and you can even go see the Mississippi's source in the Itasca State Park.
One thing is certain about Minnesota; it's much easier to get to all the places of note with your own private vehicle. Driving a car is essential if you want to visit the state parks and see the countryside, and you'll find it's much easier to get about through the towns and cities if you're driving.
Minnesota gets a fair bit of snow during the winter months, making it an excellent idea for a snowmobile holiday, and with 20,000 miles of carefully maintained snowmobile trails, it's well set up for this kind of adventure. If you're planning to come for a winter vacation, it's a good idea to ensure that you're confident to drive through ice and snow.
If you prefer the odd day not doing anything particularly active, Minnesota boasts the largest enclosed shopping centre in the United States: the Mall of America, and in the little town of Apple Valley, there's lots of wildlife at the Minnesota Zoo, a great place for a young family. There's no room for boredom in Minnesota, whatever the holiday you had in mind.
