About the Event: The X Games extreme sports event is owned and managed by ESPN. This four-day event is famous for its big sponsors, big stars, and even bigger thrills. The games are accompanied by concerts by local and national musical acts.

About the City: Minneapolis also hosted the summer X Games in 2017, so this marks the second dose of extreme sports for the city in U.S. Bank Stadium and in Medtronic Plaza and Downtown East Commons. (Note: The winter X Games are in Aspen, Colorado, Jan. 25-28.)

Why Stay A While: After a long winter, Minneapolis residents love to get out and enjoy summer events. Why not join them? The early summer weather is perfect for seeing the city. A bonus for baseball fans: The Minnesota Twins will play home games against the Boston Red Sox and the Texas Rangers June 19-24.
