Welcome to Minneapolis

Minneapolis, the “City of Lakes” comes alive in the summer months. With its lush urban parks, dedicated bike lanes, outdoor festivals, and nearly two dozen lakes (many fringed with beaches) the entire city is drawn outdoors in summer. The city is also known for its thriving art scene and is a haven for modern art and architecture. Minneapolis has two of the 10 largest art museums in the country: The Minneapolis Institute of Art and The Walker Art Center, located near the famous Minneapolis Sculpture Garden which has more than 40 permanent art installations on an 11-acre park, making it one of the largest urban sculpture gardens in the country. Visitors will also want to experience the innovative and eclectic food and drink scene. The thriving culinary scene features diverse cuisines, local ingredients and startling creativity. A unique mix of American-heartland traditions and new international perspectives, Minneapolis will surprise you with its energy and eclecticism.
