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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Oxbow Park and Zollman Zoo and Tamarack Nature Center. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Minneapolis: Minnesota Landscape Arboretum (in Chanhassen), Soldiers Field Veterans Memorial (in Rochester) and Extreme Sandbox (in Hastings). There's much more to do: test your team's savvy at The Escape Game, buy something for everyone on your list at Rybicki Cheese, pause for some photo ops at Minnesota Vietnam Veterans' Memorial, and stroll around Lebanon Hills Regional Park.

To find ratings and tourist information, use the Minneapolis online route planner .
