Minneapolis

— 4 nights

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 Minnehaha Park and Como Park Zoo & Conservatory. There's much more to do: find something for the whole family at Nickelodeon Universe, admire the natural beauty at Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, look for all kinds of wild species at Stone Arch Bridge, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at SEA LIFE at Mall of America.

Independence is the fifth-largest city in the state of Missouri. On the 5th (Mon), learn about all things military at Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum, steep yourself in history at Harry S Truman National Historic Site, and then explore the activities along Blue Spring. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: contemplate the long history of Bingham Waggoner Mansion & Estate, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at The Stone Church, then stroll through Burr Oak Woods Conservation Area, and finally grab your bike and head to Little Blue Trace Trail.

Plan my Independence trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
