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.
Popular historic sites such as James J. Hill House and Basilica of St. Mary are in your itinerary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bde Maka Ska and Grand Rounds Scenic Byway. There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Chain of Lakes, appreciate the extensive heritage of Wabasha Street Bridge, get your game on at FlyOver America, and look for gifts at Candyland.

For where to stay, other places to visit, maps, and other tourist information, read Minneapolis itinerary planning site.

The Route module can give you travel options from your home to Minneapolis. June in Minneapolis sees daily highs of 79°F and lows of 61°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Wed) so you can travel to Monroe.
