    This rail....its like a train through town I take it?
    Dang,I cant sleep I am so fired up!!
    Yep. You can get on it at the Mall of America & take it all the way to the dome. Get a 6 hour pass & you are good to go round trip. Parking at the MOA is free.

    The wife and I.
    No idea where we are staying.Will have to plan that out on the drive in the morning.
    We were looking for Packer tickets and just bought the Lions tickets on impulse about an hour ago.
    Its over 900 miles up there so we may just sleep in Iowa and arrive in Minneapolis about 8am Sunday morning.

    Bloomington are may be cheaper. ThenDT Singer I know usually stays in Bloomington. You can drive DT Mpls or catch the tram from the MOA alos in Bloomington right into DT. It is considerably cheaper, and you don't have to worry about if you enjoy a little to much beverage sand then driving. You will also get let off practically in front of the PPO Tailgate area. BUt I would start calling now. As I have no idea if there are any events in town and then Hotels may be hard to come by. I have not heard of any but you never know.
    Country inn and Suits is nice, I have had several
    familty and friends stay there when in town and have not complained about it. right across from the MOA and also the Days Inn, not sure how it ranks. I know alot of people stay there on the weekends as i drive through their lot on the way home every day and always see Viking fans in the lot (even today). Aos right across the street from the MOA so both of them you could walk to the MOA

    Webby and Neum will have the tailgate party going by 7am.
    They'd love for you to show up then!

    I know nothing about the train.
    I come from the south (Apple Valley, you'll drive right by it) and park near the dome on the street.
    Arriving at 9:30 or so, $8 in quarters parks me on the street.
    There are a lot of parking garages near the Dome, mostly to the WEST, towards downtown.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    The guy I am meeting to get the tickets cant meet me until 9am at Eden Prairie so 7am is out
    Looks like I will be leaving Eden Prairie shortly after and will drive straight over and try to find a place to park.
