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.
Head to Mall of America and Candylandfor plenty of shopping. Escape the urban bustle at Minnehaha Park and Chain of Lakes. Venture out of the city with trips to National Eagle Center (in Wabasha), Extreme Sandbox (in Hastings) and Crystal Cave (in Spring Valley). And it doesn't end there: get in on the family fun at Nickelodeon Universe, have some family-friendly fun at FlyOver America, explore the world behind art at Minneapolis Institute of Art, and enjoy some diversion at Target Field.

To find other places to visit, traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Minneapolis online journey planner .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 81°F, and evening lows to 64°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
