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.
Explore hidden gems such as Basilica of St. Mary and St. Anthony Falls. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Summit Avenue and Minnesota State Capitol. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Minneapolis: Baker Park Reserve (in Maple Plain), Red Cedar State Trail (in Menomonie) and Crystal Cave (in Spring Valley). There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Chain of Lakes, admire the majestic nature at Whitewater State Park, steep yourself in history at Historic Fort Snelling, and explore the landscape on two wheels at Grand Rounds Scenic Byway.

For photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Minneapolis road trip app .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Minneapolis-St Paul International/Wold-Chamberlain Airport, Rochester International Airport and Duluth International Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 28°C, and evening lows to 16°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
