Target Center is across the street from First Avenue, the birthplace of many of the great musicians from Minnesota; including Prince, Jimmy Jam, Shiela E, Morris Davis; Janet Jackson came here to capture the sound she made famous with Terrie Lewis and Jimmy Jam.
The Target Center is home to the MN Timberwolves and the MN Lynx. A great place to see a game. The Target Center will also host concerts, not our favorite place to see a concert but for a big venue it's not the worst either.

“Come and see a show! The Christmas Carol is a favorite, but there are plays all year long. There are restaurants inside the theater and plenty to see and do in the neighborhood before and after a show. I recommend touring the theater and checking out the "endless bridge" inside.”

Cap off the season by watching the best high school hockey around at the Minnesota Girls' and Boys' State High School Hockey Tournaments at Xcel Energy Center (Feb. 19-22 and March 4-7, respectively.)”
