Burgers have been selling across the world with an increased ferocity over the past five years, and their popularity isn’t showing signs of slowing down. St Paul is the place to go in Minnesota for the discerning burger aficionado – we check out the 10 best burgers in the region.
Sweeney’s Saloon places ‘having a good time’ on an equal footing with ‘having great quality food’. It is a neighborhood saloon which is packed nightly, on account of having one of the best atmospheres in town. The beef burgers are all a half pound of Certified Angus Beef, with vegetarian, bison and turkey burgers as alternative options. You can build your own burger or choose from their house specials, with flavors coming from Greece, the South and Dale Street, with this local burger and the Hangover Burger being the prime choice among locals.
Sweeney’s Saloon, 96 Dale Street North, St Paul, MN, USA, +1 651-221-9157.
Ward 6 has a turn of the century charm. The burgers come courtesy of Peterson Limousin Farms beef, and there’s the option of plain, with cheese, vegetarian, or, for those with a bigger appetite, opt for the Fatty Melt: the love child of a grilled cheese and a burger, with bacon. Neighborhood food made with drinking in mind, whether that’s with a beer or to cure hangover.
Ward 6, 858 Payne Avenue, St Paul, MN, USA, +1 651-348-8181.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A GUIDE?
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR JOB?
It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.
WHAT DESTINATION IS ON YOUR TRAVEL BUCKET-LIST?
I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
