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: Hastings (Extreme Sandbox & Hastings Dairy Store), Battle Axed (in Lakeville) and Wabasha (Coffee Mill Ski Area & National Eagle Center). There's still lots to do: get your game on at The Escape Game, admire the masterpieces at Minneapolis Institute of Art, examine the collection at Mill City Museum, and explore the activities along Lake of the Isles.
