Renee Santz in Minnesota
Renee: Hey there! Let’s take a minute of marvel at Minneapolis, Minnesota.
This impressive site is the Basilica of Saint Mary. A basilica is a cathedral that gets a promotion. And Saint Mary was the first one ever named in the United States. Many people come to visit this Roman Catholic church. So, I guess you could say it’s the example of “mass” transit!
The Guthrie Theater is one of the nation’s best known theaters. It’s home to a prominent group of actors, who perform classical plays, such as Shakespeare’s Hamlet. While in Minneapolis, if you start wondering whether to be or not to be, just check out the Guthrie!
Here’s the capital idea! Let’s check out the capitol building. It’s more like a work of art really, adorned with sculptures and murals by eminent artists. Even the roof is an artistic feat. It’s one of the largest self-supporting marble domes in the world!
Next time someone said “in the pig’s eye”, they may be talking about Saint Paul. Legend has it that the city was originally named Pig’s Eye, after an old fur trader. As the city grew, it was renamed Saint Paul, and joined with the city of Minneapolis, to become the twin cities.
See you later.
