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 Round Lake Park and Beach and Baker National Golf Course. Bring the kids along to Science Museum of Minnesota and Nickelodeon Universe. Change things up with these side-trips from Minneapolis: Millner Heritage Vineyard & Winery (in Kimball), Crow River Winery (in Hutchinson) and Dassel Area Historical Society Museum (in Dassel). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Mill City Museum, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Waconia Brewing Company, admire the masterpieces at Minneapolis Institute of Art, and do a tasting at Next Chapter Winery.
