It’s How You Roll

Star Treatment for VIP clients and guests.

Private Helicopter

For the highest level of hospitality, indulge your out-of-town clients with a ride in a private helicopter. Choose a 30-minute spin over the new Vikings stadium and other downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul landmarks, a 45-minute tour of the legendary estates of Lake Minnetonka or a 75-minute flight along the Mississippi River. If your agenda permits, continue north to a casino, your lake cabin or a Canadian fishing camp—the sky’s the limit. Minnesota Helicopters, 8891 Airport Rd. NE, 763-784-4354,



Clients who cycle will enjoy discovering why Bicycling magazine named Minneapolis No. 1 on its list of America's Best Bike Cities. Stop by Minneapolis Bike Rental, parked inside Charlie’s Tangletown Bike Shop, and choose a 16-speed carbon-fiber road bike or a fat bike. Head south to Lake Harriet, over to Lake Calhoun and around Lake of the Isles. Pick up the Midtown Greenway, head east to the Mississippi River, south to Fort Snelling, and circle back via the Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway, one of the longest continuous systems of public urban parkways in the U.S. 322 W. 48th St., Mpls., 612-259-8180,



Upon successful completion of goals and objectives, surprise your clients and their entourage with a celebratory trolley tour. Climb aboard the Dublin—a San Francisco-style rubber-tire “trolley” that seats 22 craft-beer lovers—and visit a long list of Twin Cities breweries. Start with Fulton Brewery in the North Loop and carry on to Northeast’s Dangerous Man Brewing Co. and 612Brew in the historic Broadway building. Properly fortified, pile back into the trolley and head over to Bang Brewing in St. Paul, then conclude the initiative at Big Wood Brewery in White Bear Lake. Renee’s Royal Valet, 763-551-1919,



When high-performance clients come to town, go the extra mile and treat them to a deluxe, chauffeur-driven Cadillac Escalade SUV, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, or Hummer limo from Total Luxury Limousine. The largest company of its kind in the Upper Midwest, this family-owned business is staffed by seasoned professionals, many whom have been with the company for a decade or longer. The fleet also includes coaches, vans, limo buses, and even a custom ’57 Chevy. 651-770-5668,


Deluxe Airstream

If your clients are filming a movie, shooting an ad campaign or covering a special event, you’d be wise to use the Tin Gypsies’ luxury Airstream motorhome as command central. Tricked out with lounge seating, a kitchen, hair/makeup stations, wardrobe areas, Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV, walkie-talkies and a very Instagrammable black-and-white striped awning, the Airstream is ideal for meetings, catering meals, reviewing the day’s work, filing stories and chilling with the crew. 612-597-6009,
