^I'm almost amazed how many people either didn't list MSP or just don't care to see it! It's never been a widely-reknown city but I expected a slightly different response on a City forum.

For what it's worth, I'm interested in visiting almost any U.S. city I haven't been to, as I'm always curious what I'll find there that I like or find out about a place that I don't like that reinforces my likes. I also have found that, lately, smaller towns and cities tend to overachieve while the bigger cities underachieve in terms of meeting my expectations....even though I prefer larger cities to smaller ones.

Of metro's over 1million I have been to:

New York, LA, Chicago, Houston, Washington, Philly, Atlanta, Phoenix, San Francisco, Detroit, Seattle, Minneapolis, San Diego, Tampa, Denver, Orlando, Portland, Las Vegas, Cincinatti, Columbus, Indy, Nashville, Milwaukee, Jacksonville, Memphis, Louisville, New Orleans, Birmingham, Grand Rapids, and Tucson.

I've driven through several others but don't count them since I didn't spend time. (I've spent a week in DFW if you total up all the nights i've had to spend due to canceled connections, but I've never gotten away from the ring of hotels around the airport).

Of the places I haven't explored I'm most curious about Buffalo, Rochester, and Hartford.

I did visit Chicago, along with San Diego in 2017 and Seattle (along with Portland) last fall. I'm also going to visit St. Louis in June along with Kansas City. I've driven past Pittsburgh and Miami since then as well, but have never really stopped in those except for a stop for a bathroom break in their suburbs, so they really don't count.
