About Minneapolis

“With its gleaming skyscrapers set amid glittering lakes, Minneapolis makes for an attractive and fun getaway. A truly year-round destination, the city offers activities for every season. In winter, one can explore the downtown area through more than seven miles of glass-enclosed skyways. In addition to keeping you warm, they create a lively thoroughfare filled with specialty shops, restaurants, and services.

Whether you want to escape the winter cold or the summer warmth, the Mall of America offers shopping, dining, and entertainment options for any time of the year and every member of the family.”

Fine Arts

“Art lovers have plenty to see at the Minneapolis Art Institute, Walker Art Center and the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum, which all house world-renowned collections. The theater scene is thriving. With more than thirty theaters, Minneapolis has more seats per capita than any U.S. city except New York. See a Broadway show and enjoy dinner and live jazz at a fabulous restaurant.”

The Outdoors

“Known as ‘The City of Lakes’, Minneapolis has 22 lakes located within the city limits and many more in the surrounding area. In town, hordes of locals and tourists in-line skate or stroll around one of the most popular lakes, Bde Maka Ska..stopping for ice cream along the way. Just outside of town, Fort Snelling State Park offers outdoor recreational activities from hiking to biking and golf to boating.”


“A culture committed to perfecting the craft of the brew, the best park system in the nation, and a foodie paradise where you can get Nordic cuisine for breakfast, Ethiopian for lunch, and this thing called a “Juicy Lucy” for dinner- and oh yeah, cocktails on a Ferris wheel.”
