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.
Escape the urban bustle at Minnehaha Park and Como Park Zoo & Conservatory. Let the collections at Minneapolis Institute of Art and Mill City Museum capture your imagination. Venture out of the city with trips to Next Chapter Winery (in New Prague) and Minnesota Landscape Arboretum (in Chanhassen). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of Saint Paul, steep yourself in history at Historic Fort Snelling, get in on the family fun at Cafesjian's Carousel, and have fun at Target Field.
