Best Parking Lot

Victory Ramp

Residents of St. Paul can be assured that when they die and go to heaven, it will look just like St. Paul, though probably not as nice. Everything is better here, including the basic essentials of life, like parking. Introducing the Victory Ramp. For a modest $10 for events, you’re a five-minute walk from the Xcel Energy Center. Its quasi-dungeonesque vibe brings a bit of character to your vehicular journeys. And after a concert or a game, it expels cars onto scenic Wabasha Street — “the Champs-Élysées of the Midwest” — offering relatively uncongested access to I-94, allowing easy return to that other city westward.
