The VA Medical Center Station on the Hiawatha Line (soon to be the Blue Line)
Today we took the train here:
Warehouse District Station, Downtown Minneapolis
The gym we are members of has a location only two blocks from this stop, which used to be the end of the line. They extended it one more stop when Target Field opened a few years ago. It is indispensable for getting to Twins games and all sorts of other sporting events. And really, to getting all sorts of other places. Here's a map:
We also use it all the time to go to Mall of America for shopping or movies... and occasionally, to go on some rides. They are building a second line (the Central Corridor or Green Line) that will connect the two downtowns, branching off at the Metrodome Station and then terminating at the newly renovated Union Depot in St. Paul. It is set to open approximately 18 months from now. We're a little excited. The Green Line will have a stop just in front of Andy's office, so his commute will be a breeze.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have turkey stock simmering on my stove that I need to check on. I leave you with another cute Calvin photo:
