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.
Venture out of the city with trips to The Belwin Conservancy (in Afton), Hastings (Extreme Sandbox, Vermillion Falls, &more) and Veit Automotive Foundation Educational Museum (in Buffalo). And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at Clemens Gardens, explore the world behind art at Minneapolis Institute of Art, explore the activities along Lake of the Isles, and get your game on at Game Show Battle Rooms.

To see other places to visit, maps, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Minneapolis holiday builder.
