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.

Together with St. Paul, the city forms one of the largest metropolitan areas in the United States, claiming nearly 4 million residents.
