DescriptionMinneapolis is a world-class city, with fabulous shopping, dining and entertainment. Getting around is a snap using light rail transit, with stops in downtown, the airport and Mall of America. And, as the City by Nature, outdoor activities are always at your fingertips.

Visit the historic Riverfront District, where Minneapolis got its start in the flour milling industry. Experience the City of Lakes at its best and walk or bike on 50 miles of trails along the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway or enjoy paths winding through the city along the Mississippi River.

Diverse ethnic options line Nicollet Avenue’s “Eat Street” and the Warehouse District is the center of downtown’s nightlife; bursting with restaurants and nightclubs.

The music and theater scene is top-notch, with everything from Broadway shows to local and national bands. Tony Award-winners The Children’s Theatre Company and the Guthrie Theater call Minneapolis home, as well as three historic theaters that make up the Hennepin Theatre District. And orchestra and opera groups perform throughout the year.

Art, science and history are on display at more than 57 museums in the city and well-known places such as Walker Art Center and Weisman Art Museum that have made their mark nationally.

Shop along Nicollet Mall at Macy’s and the flagship Target store or visit the largest mall in the country, Mall of America – a short ride via light rail train. Plus, there’s no sales tax on apparel and shoes, so get ready to save!
