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.
Step out of Minneapolis with an excursion to Extreme Sandbox in Hastings--about 40 minutes away. There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Minneapolis Institute of Art, see the interesting displays at Mill City Museum, have fun at Target Field, and browse the different shops at Mall of America.

For reviews, traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, read Minneapolis trip maker app .

Use the Route module to see travel options from your home to Minneapolis. Expect a daytime high around 68°F in May, and nighttime lows around 50°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Duluth.
