"Welcome to Minneapolis...."

"Minneapolis is the perfect blend of natural beauty and urban sophistication. No other city has a chain of lakes, the mighty Mississippi and 200 miles of walking, biking and cross country ski trails within the city limits literally steps from the most vibrant arts and music scene outside NYC, the best shopping in the region and museums among the finest in the nation. From ski hills to shopping malls, Muskie to Monet, biking to Beef Bourguignon, Minneapolis is the American city where natural and urban drama share a single stage. Plan your trip to Minneapolis by checking out all the things to do, places to eat and ways to stay. We’ll see you soon." - All information courtesy of Meet Minneapolis
