In need of a vacation? Take a city bus ride. You will meet some amazing people and how could you beat the scenery of Minneapolis? I have taken many buses in my life and I have to say Metro Transit has been the best quality. From the instant I stepped on I felt welcome and the bus drivers were very friendly and helpful. If I didn't know exactly where I was going or didn't know the cost, they were very helpful...and some would even give me maps to help me find my way. Instead of spending the $$$ on a taxi, hop on your local bus as it drives by!
