Parking at Xcel

7 posts in this topic

What's the going rate for parking at/around Xcel? I haven't been to a game down there in a couple of years, and I was lucky enough to get 4 free tickets for Sunday's game. I'm bringing 3 of the kids along and I'm trying to figure out my budget for food/parking etc. Thanks!

its about 15-20 for the flat lots close by the arena, try the Lawson ramp behind Kindcaids it is usually cheaper

J- Most guys are charging 15 to park. Get there about an hour and a half before the game and just start driving around. Most parking restrictions are not in effect weekends i.e. 1 hr parking before 6, etc. Tues we went to the 'Nuckleheads game and got there @ 430. Parked at Tom Reids and it was free. By 5 an employee had put up a chain and they were charging 10 or 15$ for parking. I am going tomorrow, too-supposed to be a nice day so we are just going to drive around and find a free spot.I hate paying for parking... Good luck!

If its not a kids event so to speak I would recommend parking at Alary's for $3 and ride the free bus to the game and back. The scenary is unbelievable and the beer is cold and reasonably priced.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.
