Take a walk in one of 5,000 parks in Minneapolis
Home to Mall of America, Minneapolis forms “Twin Cities” with the neighboring state capital of St. Paul and is full of lush nature. Take a tour of downtown by kayak, or catch live music at Minneapolis Music and Movies in the Parks during the summer. When the weather is just right, go apple picking at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum and collect Minnesota’s famous apple: the Honeycrisp. Tour a craft brewery, get a hands-on history lesson about the state’s flour industry at Mill City Museum and visit the club that made Prince famous – First Avenue. Don’t forget to take a picture with his gold star on the wall. Bring your fur-baby to nearly 2 acres of off-leash dog park at Lake of the Isles, and discover all the nature Minneapolis has to offer.
