Minneapolis has bad traffic. Seattle's problem was that it had four or five highways converge into a huge mess of crazy. Minneapolis has the same problem, with a twist. They purposely tried to get all the highways to intersect and merge. That way, you won't have a long wait before you reach the highway you want, no matter where you're going or where you start from.
It's a good plan, actually. The downside is that the roads have more forks than a silverware convention. It's helpful when my GPS tells me to "take the left fork", but when there are three froks in quick succession, my GPS can't react quickly enough, and I end up taking the wrong one.
The city was also undergoing large construction work that day, so many streets and highways were closed. I ended up having to take a half-hour detour through the University of Minnesota. It's a nice-looking campus, but it takes way too long to go through.
In Minneapolis, I drove past all three stadiums. The baseball one is in a bad part of town that I would never want to visit at night. The football one seems like it's in an inconvenient location; it feels sort of squeezed into a place near the highway. The hockey stadium seemed like it had the best location, with plenty of open parking lots and everything.
I think the saving grace in Minneapolis was a great radio station I found called Jack FM. The gimmick behind the station is that they don't have any DJ banter. Ever. I really liked it, and I'm going to start listening to it online.
Once I finally left the traffic disaster of the Twin Cities, I went through Wisconsin. I got some cheese at a local dairy on the way to Green Bay, but I left it alone too long and it spoiled. Now I don't know what their famous cheese tastes like.
