Saint Paul Activities and Attractions 

Attractions & Fun Things to Do: Whether you’re planning every minute of your Saint Paul convention or just find yourself with a free hour between meetings, the list of fun things to do ranges from art galleries to historical sites to professional sports to zoos. Where to begin all depends on what you’re in the mood for, but we’ve got plenty of great tips to get you started - indoors, outdoors, and all along our 26 miles of Mississippi Riverfront. In addition; the Science Museum of Minnesota has generously offered free general admission to all NAF attendees with the presentation of conference credentials or conference name tag to the museum’s box office.

Art and Entertainment: The arts & entertainment scene accents Saint Paul's unique charm with visual, musical, literary and interactive beauty. Saint Paul’s arts and music scene might seem underground to outsiders, but it's a thriving and innovative community with plenty to offer visitors. From cutting-edge galleries and soapbox poetry slams to the Saint Paul Art Crawl, Saint Paul is an epicenter of the Upper Midwest’s creative community. Theater is also a large compenent of life in Saint Paul. The Ordway, a 1,900-seat theater in the heart of downtown, hosts a range of reknown soloists, companies and titles in dance and theater performances. Unfortunately Prairie Home Companion will not be at the Fitzgerald Theater during the Forum, but you could always listen to a podcast!

Minneapolis Activities and Attractions

Tours and AttractionsThe history, art, culture and beauty of Minneapolis are marvels that must be experienced rather than witnessed. Nature meets skyscrapers, blending together to create unique sights and attractions that can only be experienced in Minneapolis. Tour the city with a knowledgeable guide, or venture into an adventure of your own; either way, the life of this city will unfold before your eyes. In Minneapolis, spectators become participants, so get ready to immerse yourself in our culture.

Discover new worlds at the The Science Museum of Minnesota. Take in the arias of Rossini at the Minnesota Opera. Or visit the Walker Art Center, hailed by Newsweek as "possibly the best contemporary art museum in the country." Minneapolis is your ticket to groundbreaking art, architecture and performing arts.
