The City of Lakes

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.
Family-friendly places like Baker Park Reserve and Lake of the Isles will thrill your kids. Escape the urban bustle at Minnehaha Park and The Belwin Conservancy. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Minneapolis: Murphy-Hanrehan Park Reserve (in Savage) and Brown's Creek Trail (in Stillwater). There's much more to do: explore the activities along Chain of Lakes, trek along Silverwood Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at Gateway Trail, and cruise along Grand Rounds Scenic Byway.

Plan my Minneapolis trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Washington DC to Minneapolis is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Washington DC to Minneapolis.
