Minnesotans have a strong bond with nature, and of the most regions, they hold most sacred is the North Shore region. It is north of Duluth and preserves the land of forests, rocky shoreline all along the largest freshwater lake in the world. If you find yourself drinking in North St. Paul enjoying a cold hams beer with the big bullfrog next to you then don’t worry you are not drunk; you are probably just drinking in Newton’s bar the oldest saloon in all of Minnesota. It has been serving locals and travelers alike for a hundred years.
So, drink a cold one with live music on the weekends with great pub grub; Minnesota has some of the best old-school bars and has survived the darkest hours of human history such as the prohibition period. The nightclubs are not assuming or pretentious but instead, it is warm and welcoming when you go inside. You will be surrounded by friendly locals and the great history of the Twin Cities and of America itself. The bars are usually minor-friendly, and the increasing use of fake identification allows the young ones in the community to have fun with their friends and have a good time inside these historic age-restricted places.
