St. Paul, Minnesota's capital, is located on I-94 in the Twin Cities Metro Region, on the banks of the Mississippi River.

In 1841, Pig's Eye Landing resident and French priest, Lucien Galtier, renamed the settlement St. Paul after his favorite saint. In 1849, Minnesota was named a territory and St. Paul was designated its capital, which spurred the town's growth.

Today St. Paul possesses a large, ethnically diverse population, and is home to a campus of the University of Minnesota. Summit Avenue features one of the longest stretches of virtually uninterrupted Victorian architecture in the country. Fitzgerald Theater is home to Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion. Skyways invented in Minneapolis, St. Paul's twin city, are enclosed pedestrian walkways that connect practically all of downtown St. Paul, sheltering workers and visitors from inclement weather.

St. Paul's historic, cultural, and educational points of interest include:
