With its distinctive pyramid top, Travelers is a landmark on the skyline of Saint Paul, Minn. More than 2,000 employees work at the location, which consists of two main buildings linked by a skyway and a tunnel. For the address and directions, click here.
Here are a few examples of how our professionals enjoy the city.
Downtown Saint Paul has a wide variety of sidewalk eateries and patio pubs for everyday eating establishments, as well as fine dining for those special occasions.
If you're in the mood for an award-winning brew pub, you may want to invite some friends to Great Waters Brewing Company located across the street from our building. Great Waters has an outdoor patio for summertime happy hours. Or you may try the local Irish pub at Patrick McGovern's for a fun atmosphere with large servings of food!
If you're looking for a relaxing and casual dining experience you may want to check out the 30's and 40's décor at Eagle Street Grille and enjoy the tasty burgers and sandwiches. Another hometown favorite is the Italian market and restaurant Cossetta's, which serves delicious Italian buffet style food. When looking for some fine dining you may want to gather at The St. Paul Grille for an elegant dining experience.
If nightlife is what you're looking for, Grand Avenue is the place to go for a street full of restaurants, bars, and dance clubs. For some dancing and a Chicago inspired club atmosphere you may want to head to The Wild Onion for some fun. Or if you're looking to shoot some pool, play darts or relax on the outdoor patio, Billy's on Grand is the place to be. Billy's attracts a large crowd of students from the local colleges, especially during a local sporting event.
Sporting events are always a blast when you're with your friends. During the summer you will want to catch a game at Midway Stadium watching the Saint Paul Saints professional minor league baseball team play. You can always come early and grill out and play catch with your friends in the parking lot, or find a picnic area for pre-game activities. Besides the exciting competition, they also have many crazy activities, contests and giveaways during the game.
During fall and throughout winter the NHL Minnesota Wild Hockey Team rules the ice. The new Xcel Energy Center hosts the team, which is conveniently located across the street from our Saint Paul campus building. Many of us head over to Wild Tymes Restaurant and Bar for some Minnesota Wild fever before the game for a bite to eat. The place gets packed quickly so come early before a game to grab a seat!
The city of Saint Paul is also home to many museums and historic sites. During the summer you can take a nice leisurely walk beginning at the Cathedral of Saint Paul and down through historic Summit Avenue. There you will view the beautiful historic homes such as The James J. Hill House, a historic house museum. Or you may want to head over to the Science Museum of Minnesota to view captivating exhibits with a spectacular view of the Mississippi River.
Saint Paul also offers Broadway plays at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts and at the professional Penumbra Theatre Company and The Fitzgerald Theater. As a Travelers employee, we get great discounts to the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts and the Science Museum.
Take a stroll through Rice Park and then take a seat by the water fountain and enjoy a picnic with friends for lunch. The park hosts several parties and concerts throughout the year. Across from Rice Park is the Historic Landmark Center. There and throughout the city, you will see “life-size” bronze versions of Charlie Brown and Snoopy as the Landmark Plaza is home to Saint Paul 's native Charles Schulz who created the Peanuts comic strip and characters.
