Minneapolis

Located on both banks of the Mississippi River, Minneapolis salutes the state's love of the outdoors with numerous lakes, wetlands, creeks, and waterfalls--many connected to one another by a national scenic byway great for sightseeing.
Change things up with these side-trips from Minneapolis: Elk River (Wild Woods Water Park & Oliver Kelley Farm), Crystal Cave (in Spring Valley) and Candyland (in Stillwater). The adventure continues: have fun at Target Field, take in nature's colorful creations at Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, browse the different shops at Mall of America, and meet the residents at Como Park Zoo & Conservatory.
