It may be National Relaxation Day today, but our list of ways to unwind in the Twin Cities can happen any—or every!—day of the year. So even if you can’t indulge yourself today, take a look at our suggestions, pull out your calendar, and block a Relaxation Day all for yourself.
Pair calming music with beautiful art
Make a classical music playlist and tap into your artistic side with a stroll through the Walker Art Center (right next to 430 Oak Grove!) or the Minneapolis Institute of Art.
Center yourself with yoga
Yoga can be as much a mental experience as it is a physical one—grab your mat and let the cares of the day slip away as you focus on your breathing and your balance with a good workout. CorePower Yoga has locations throughout the Twin Cities—and your first week with them is free!
If you’re an E Street Flats resident, take advantage of Trenti Training’s onsite pilates classes, every Friday at 10AM!
Spend an evening listening to jazz
The Dakota Jazz Club was one of Prince’s favorite venues and is an iconic Minneapolis spot offering music every single night. Enjoy beautiful music while relaxing with great food and cocktails.
Take in a rooftop sunset
No matter if the evening is a steamy or crisp one, there’s nothing better than a beautiful sunset. Find your favorite rooftop and spend a few moments reflecting on your day while taking in the colors. Many of our communities offer gorgeous rooftops, including Heritage Landing, Genesee Apartments and Townhomes, 430 Oak Grove, and One Southdale Place.
Indulge yourself in retail therapy…
The Twin Cities Premium Outlets is a new shopping center in Eagan—and bonus, it’s just down the road from our Woodridge community! Score some deals at stores like Banana Republic, Old Navy, Le Creuset, and Eddie Bauer.
…or just indulge yourself.
Looking for the ultimate relaxation experience? The Ivy Spa Club is a calming oasis located downtown Minneapolis, offering massages, facials, manicures and pedicures, and other treatments.
Want something just as relaxing with a lower price point? The Aveda Institute in Minneapolis offers massage and facial services at about half the cost!
There are also many other ways to relax without leaving your StuartCo home, whether it be a quiet evening stroll,
a dip in the pool,
or simply prioritizing 15 minutes to sit and reflect on your day.
