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.
On the 1st (Fri), examine the collection at Mill City Museum, then have some family-friendly fun at The Escape Game, and then buy something for everyone on your list at Mall of America. Keep things going the next day: admire the masterpieces at Minneapolis Institute of Art, get your game on at FlyOver America, then find something for the whole family at Nickelodeon Universe, and finally admire the sheer force of Minnehaha Park.
