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.
Start off your visit on the 5th (Mon): explore the activities along Excelsior Commons, then test your team's savvy at The Escape Game, and then get your game on at FlyOver America. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: kick back and relax at Square Lake Park and then have some family-friendly fun at Extreme Sandbox.

To find photos, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Minneapolis trip planning app .

Watertown to Minneapolis is an approximately 3-hour flight. You can also drive. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Watertown in August since evenings lows in Minneapolis dip to 64°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Duluth.
