Yes, the hotel that I booked and the hotel that the airline put me in after my flight got camceled were both across from Mall of America and 10 minutes from the airport. I have never used Uber nor Lyft, so I dont know
If those are your only options, at least you have a heads up about possible transportation costs.

Did you stay at a hotel? I know you mentioned Uber's craziness with the prices, would Lyft be any different, you think? I don't drive, so those will be my only options right now....

You are very welcome!!!
I did more sightseeing in general landmarks in St Paul and Minnesota including St Paul's Cathedral, the homes of F. Scott Fitzgerald and also I went to the Electric Fetus record store, etc but those photos give the gist of the Prince must-see landmarks during a very brief trip (i got to MN at 8am on Saturday morning and was supposed to fly home at 12 noon on Sunday (ended up back at the airport at 4am on Monday for a 6am flight back home), so I saw and did everything that I had on my itinerary for the 1 day trip that I had planned.

Also, there is a lil cafe in St Paul called The Buttered Tin. My only regret for the whole trip is that I wasnt able to go back there on Sunday and Monday for breakfast bc their food is SOO GOOD!!!

Sidenote - Everyone in MN is really tall and corn fed (solid/athletic build). I was surprised, but I know that just like how Texans are tall, sturdy people, some Midwesterners are too, but i was just caught off guard by how many of them are really tall, but I remembered that it's bc of their German, Nordic & Swedish genes in that region. They are big, strong Minneaota Vikings for real.

And I never heard the stereotypical MN accent while I was there though i talked to a lot of people that have lived their all of their lives.

But then again, my cousin is a newscaster there in MN on a major network and she and her family there dont have the stereotypical MN accent, so i think that the accent may be more north or maybe in Fargo like that movie lol

Girl, yes. I was sitting with the family.
If you look at the glamorous life video clip, that is Prince's nephew in the view of the camera clapping & dancing. Tyka was to his left. Prince's brother was to his right.

It's weird, but i always end up in fluke situations like that lol. Always

***Here are 2 of my video clips from the Purple Philanthrophy concert***

Sheila E and Prince had a god son together (his parents worked for Prince during the Purple Rain tour) and he is now Sheila's guitarist:
