About Minneapolis, Minnesota

The Dakota Sioux lived on the flat-lands of Minneapolis years before French explorers arrived in 1680. Both nations continued to live there, competing for land, game and other resources.

Since then, it has grown at a rapid pace. The nearby Saint Anthony Falls acted as a source of power for local industries. You can still see evidence of some of these mills today in the local museums – make sure you check them out!

Now, it’s become a thriving and inviting metropolis. There’s everything you could possibly need for a city break, but it's also not too far from national parks and green areas if you want to get close to nature.

What to do

One of the most famous man-made attractions in Minneapolis: the Mall Of America! If shopping's your thing, you'll be in paradise! It has more than 520 stores, an indoor theme park, a range of top restaurants and exciting nightlife. If you wanted, you could stay there for the whole of your vacation!

In the fall, go apple picking and see if you can collect the Honeycrisp – Minnesota's favorite apple. Minneapolis in the winter is cold, but exciting. Take this chance to skate inside The Depot – a former train station. There's nothing quite like it!

No matter what time of year you visit, make sure you visit St. Anthony Falls – it's spectacular, especially in the winter because it freezes!

Music fans should head to First Avenue – it's the club that made Prince famous. Make sure you take a camera, you can have a picture with his gold star!

Top Minneapolis travel tips

Baseball is the nation's pastime, and few are prouder of it than the people of Minneapolis. Try to catch a Twins game during your stay and have the experience of a lifetime!
