The folks in Eagan, Minnesota, have their eyes on 2018. In March, the Minnesota Vikings will open a new headquarters, training facility and outdoor stadium in their city.
“We’re very excited for this development to be right here in Eagan,” says Denise Olsen of the Eagan CVB. “The Vikings have never had a hall of fame, and that will be part of the new facility. Our goal is that groups will be able to tour it year-round.”
The stadium and headquarters are part of a larger project that will eventually include hotels, shopping and an entertainment complex.
Eagan is already on the map for shoppers. Its Twin Cities Premium Outlets is adding new stores, and the city is a 15-minute drive from the Mall of America, an NTA member.
“We love groups,” Olsen says. “And when you stay in Eagan, every person in the group gets a great Eagan gift bag with coupons and fun stuff.”
