Episode 37: Super Bowl destination Minneapolis: Bold North
Minneapolis is the Super Bowl host city this year and locals are hoping visitors will embrace the Bold North with winter sports, a winter carnival and other cold weather activities.
In this episode of “Get Outta Here,” hosted by AP Travel editor Beth Harpaz, we’ll talk with AP reporter Amy Forliti, who covers the Twin Cities, about what there is for Super Bowl visitors to see and do there. On the list: winter sports, outdoor concerts, an interactive attraction called Super Bowl Experience and other sports- and winter-themed activities. Local attractions worth checking out include Prince’s Paisley Park and the Mall of America.
New episodes of “Get Outta Here!” are published every Wednesday. Host Beth J. Harpaz is travel editor for The Associated Press, a Big Apple Greeter and a licensed tour guide in her native New York City. She recently completed a quest to visit all 50 states.
Before becoming travel editor, where most of the news - thank goodness - is about happy people going on nice vacations, Beth covered politics, disasters and all manner of mayhem for the AP. And not to reveal her age, but she also worked for several newspapers way back in the 20th century and even wrote three books.
She does not own wheeled luggage but instead carries her belongings around the world in an ancient backpack and various tote bags.
