Our third annual Best of MN features a number of improvements over previous editions. Look for more resorts, B&Bs and campgrounds in our enhanced Getaways chapter. Consult our new Design chapter for a guide to the Minneapolis apartment boom. And don’t miss our picks for best hot dog, best swimming pool and best taprooms in the Twin Cities and beyond. As with previous years, these selections were made carefully by Star Tribune journalists and critics. Only the state’s largest newsroom could produce such an expertly reported and curated list of the state’s finest.
