The City of Lakes

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.
Kids will enjoy Mall of America and Nickelodeon Universe. And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Minneapolis Institute of Art, walk around Lebanon Hills Regional Park, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Como Park Zoo & Conservatory, and get in on the family fun at Lego Imagination Center.
