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: Stillwater (Historic Lift Stillwater Bridge & Square Lake Park), National Eagle Center (in Wabasha) and Extreme Sandbox (in Hastings). There's still lots to do: enjoy some diversion at Target Field, get engrossed in the history at Mill City Museum, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Como Park Zoo & Conservatory, and take in the dramatic scenery at Minnehaha Park.

For more things to do, photos, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Minneapolis trip planning site .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Minneapolis-St Paul International/Wold-Chamberlain Airport, Rochester International Airport and Duluth International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 33°C in July, and nighttime lows around 21°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Sat) so you can travel back home.
