Minneapolis
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.
Escape the urban bustle at Cannon Valley Trail and Crystal Cave. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Interstate State Park and Grand Rounds Scenic Byway. When in Minneapolis, make a side trip to see Cascade Falls in Osceola, approximately 1h 05 min away. There's still lots to do: get some jogging in at Summit Avenue, contemplate the waterfront views at Chain of Lakes, and grab your bike and head to Loring Park.

To see traveler tips, maps, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Minneapolis day trip tool .

Cedar Rapids to Minneapolis is an approximately 3.5-hour flight. You can also drive. Expect a daytime high around 83°F in July, and nighttime lows around 65°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
