Minneapolis Institute of Arts

For kids and adults alike, visiting the Minneapolis Institute of Arts has many different attractions.  They have galleries, different exhibits, art classes, programs for kids, and much more.  You should plan an entire day for this visit, as there is so much to see and do.

Target Field

Whether for a ball game or concert, you will absolutely love your visit here.  The home of the Twins, there isn’t a bad seat in the entire stadium.  The food is also excellent (which is a rare find at a stadium).  You will also get to see the amazing skyline view of downtown Minneapolis.

Minnehaha Park

Given and excellent rating from visitors, the main highlight of the park is gorgeous waterfall.  There are many lakes and trails, and the park is bicycle friendly, as well.  There are plenty of things to do for kids as well as adults.

This park has a ‘serenity’ to it that many parks do not have.  This is a must-see for anyone visiting Minneapolis.

Minneapolis Skyway System

Minneapolis is well known for its harsh winters.  The skyway system is the best way to get around town, not only for visitors, but people who work use the skyway all of the time, also.  At any time of the year, you will stay warm and dry while visiting.

Connecting to many retail shops, coffee shops, and just the beautiful view of downtown Minneapolis, you really can’t pass this up.  It not only connects to stores, but it also connects to many office buildings, banks, etc.  The skyway is definitely a must for visitors and newcomers alike.

Escape MSP

This attraction has actually made national news.  It is essentially a ‘game’ where you are on a mission, teamwork is a must.  You have a certain amount of time to find the ‘secret item’ and escape.  Fun for all ages over 10, and hundreds of visitors have given it an excellent rating.

People have gone to Minneapolis to visit, but they have gone back just to play Escape MSP.
