You could stay in St.Louis Park at the Double tree Inn and take an Uber cab back and forth.  Then you could eat at any of the restaurants in the West End, all of which are walking distance from hotel.

I will check that out right now.  Thanks

Hey we stayed there about 3 years ago and met family at Dovers.  Had a great time.  Now to get tickets.  AND haven't done the Uber thing.  Are they reliable and on time?  I guess it would be fun to go to the new stadium early and check things out.

For Uber, you install the app on you phone.  You click the button and with a min/two someone will accept you and you watch the little 'car' icon drive right to you.  I recently took my family to Chicago and it is all that we used for 4 days straight.  It worked great!  You fill your card information into the app, so there is no cash exchanged.

If you are with a group and need a larger vehicle, you select UberXL.  These are vehicles with third row seating.  Suburban, SUV, mini van.

Thanks Bartman.  That sounds great and easy.  Good info.  It looks like tickets won't be on sale till mid July through Ticketmaster if any are available.  I want to try the Uber thing now.

Another option to consider is staying a hotel by the Mall of America and taking the light rail to the stadium. The light rail will be packed, but you can't beat it for convenience. I don't know if the hotels at the MOA charge more or less than other hotels, but it's something to look into if you'll be coming with anyone else who would like to visit the MOA while you're in town.

I see there is a Comfort Inn by the Mall that has an Outback Steakhouse.  They said if I get tickets they will shuttle us to the train and the train will bring us right to the stadium.

I just spent a week in California and used UBER out there and it was so easy, convenient and super fast. Way better experience than using an over priced dirty taxi.

For example, I had a 6:20 am flight yesterday out of San Diego. Set my alarm for 4am, hit the uber button at 4:10am. Driver picked my family of 4 at 4:14am and we were at the airport at 4:21am. Once your ride is complete it will email you a receipt. He drove us 2.24 miles and it cost me $5. 

No way I could have did that via taxi.
