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.
Visit Cathedral of Saint Paul and Rock Island Swing Bridge for their historical value. Get outdoors at Baker Park Reserve and Como Park Zoo & Conservatory. And it doesn't end there: buy something for everyone on your list at Mall of America, take in the dramatic scenery at Minnehaha Park, explore the world behind art at Minneapolis Institute of Art, and wander the streets of Mississippi Mile.
