Minneapolis, Minnesota

Minneapolis is the larger, more cosmopolitan half of the Twin Cities (a metro area bisected by the Mississippi River, with the state capital, St. Paul, on the east side). It’s been a go-to cultural center for decades, whether for dramatic productions at the Guthrie Theater, avant-garde art at the Walker Art Center, or live bands at First Avenue and 7th Street Entry, which Prince put on the map with his iconic film Purple Rain. Winters are legendarily long and cold, a perfect time to spend indoors at the behemoth Mall of America. But locals make the most of summer with outdoor activities that include biking or boating on one of the surrounding lakes that give Minneapolis its nickname, the “City of Lakes.”

REASONS TO GO:
  • Serious Shopping: The Mall of America, in suburban Bloomington, is the largest mall in the U.S., with more than 500 stores and about five million square feet of interior space. Many people plan an entire vacation around a visit. But day trippers also can cover a lot of ground, including a visit to the indoor Nickelodeon Universe theme park.

  • City Walks: The Mill District is one of the most vibrant, walkable areas in Minneapolis. Make a stop at the Mill City Museum, where you can climb the eight-story Flour Tower to the observation deck for a look out over the river. End up in Gold Medal Park for views of the famous Stone Arch Bridge.

  • Edgy Art: The Walker Art Center is one of the country’s most-visited contemporary art museums, known for its installations of visual, performing and media arts. The 19-acre campus includes a sleek textured-metal tower that’s been compared to a piece of crumpled paper. The adjacent Minneapolis Sculpture Park is home to larger-than-life works, such as the beloved Spoonbridge and Cherry, and the glass Cowles Conservatory makes for a perfect wintertime stroll.

  • Loads of Lakes: Minnesota is the “Land of 10,000 Lakes,” with more than 20 in Minneapolis alone. The Chain of Lakes Regional Park is a group of six lakes connected by waterways; Harriet and Calhoun are the largest and most popular. Rent a canoe or kayak, or if you prefer dry land, bike or walk the paved trails that ring the shorelines. Concerts happen all summer long at the Lake Harriet Bandshell.
BEST BET: THE GUTHRIE THEATER
Housed in a dramatic blue metal-and-glass structure in the Mill District on the banks of the Mississippi, the Guthrie Theater is the Twin Cities’ premier performing arts venue. Productions are held year-round on the Guthrie’s three stages—from musicals to Shakespeare to experimental pieces workshopped in the theater’s studio space.

OFF THE BEATEN PATH: WEISMAN ART MUSEUM
While the Walker gets deserved attention, the Weisman Art Museum, located on the University of Minnesota campus, is also worth a visit. Designed by famed architect Frank Gehry, its curvilinear silver exterior is a striking work of art in itself. The museum’s permanent collection focuses heavily on American modernism, as well as significant collections of ceramics, Native American pottery and traditional Korean furniture. Admission is free.

WHEN TO GO:
Winters can be frigid, but locals embrace the cold with annual events such as the Holiday Market, a take on traditional European Christmas markets, held at Peavey Plaza in November and December. As a city with lakes, wetlands and a major river, Minneapolis’ summertime is extremely humid. Cool off at Minnehaha Park, south of downtown, where you can feel the spray from the 53-foot waterfalls.

TRAVEL TIP:
The Twin Cities is a culturally diverse area. Get a feel for that flavor at the Midtown Global Market, where you can sample foods from vendors specializing in the cuisines of India, Korea, the Middle East and more.
