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.
Attractions like Nickelodeon Universe and National Eagle Center make great kid-friendly stops. When in Minneapolis, make a side trip to see Extreme Sandbox - Minnesota in Hastings, approximately 40 minutes away. There's lots more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Como Park Zoo & Conservatory, find something for the whole family at Valleyfair, have fun at Target Field, and stroll through Minnesota Zoo.

To find maps, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our Minneapolis itinerary builder.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Minneapolis-St Paul International/Wold-Chamberlain Airport, Rochester International Airport and Duluth International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 26°C in September, and nighttime lows around 14°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
