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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Minneapolis: Escape MSP - Lakeville (in Lakeville) and Sand Creek Adventures (in Jordan). There's still lots to do: browse the different shops at Mall of America, take an in-depth tour of Mill City Museum, explore the world behind art at Minneapolis Institute of Art, and see the interesting displays at American Swedish Institute.

To see traveler tips, ratings, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Minneapolis attractions planner.

The Route module shows you travel options from your home to Minneapolis. In December, plan for daily highs up to 28°F, and evening lows to 16°F. You'll set off for Phoenix on the 10th (Thu).
