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.
Attractions like Nickelodeon Universe and Quarry Hill Nature Center make great kid-friendly stops. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Minneapolis: Austin (Sweet Reads, Jay C. Hormel Nature Center, & more), Sargent's Nursery (in Red Wing) and Rochester (Gonda Building, The Plummer Building - Mayo Clinic Historical Suite, & more). There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at Minneapolis Institute of Art, don't miss a visit to Minnehaha Falls, take in nature's colorful creations at Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, and have fun and explore at Children's Museum of Southern Minnesota.

To find other places to visit, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Minneapolis tour itinerary planner.

In June, plan for daily highs up to 79°F, and evening lows to 61°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
