Places to see in Minneapolis

Minneapolis is a cosmopolitan city with much to offer. Chief among the city's highlights are the numerous modern museums and galleries. You'll find the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis Institute of Art and the Sculpture Garden, three institutions that host cutting-edge national and international art exhibitions throughout the year. On the banks of the Mississippi, you'll also find the Weisman Art Museum, an impressively designed silver museum housing a wide variety of swanky art collections.

For the best views of the city, head to the Guthrie Theater and take the escalator up to the Endless Bridge. This walkway overlooks the Mississippi and provides one of the best vantage points in Minneapolis. On the corner of 7th Street, you'll find a statue of Mary Tyler Moore, paying respect to the city's rich musical heritage. Sticking to music, Prince’s famed Paisley Park can be easily reached with rental cars from Minneapolis. The city itself features a number of must-visit record shops, music venues, and gig-oriented cafes.

Music fans have much to relish in the city and its twin, St. Paul, which is easily reached with a car hire from Minneapolis. 7th Street Entry and First Avenue (once Prince's home stage) are both found opposite each other and are great places to catch gigs. You’ll find a wealth of music venues across both cities, catering to a wide and eclectic range of tastes. 

What natural sites can you visit from Minneapolis?

Minneapolis is the perfect base to explore Minnesota's beautiful and unspoiled landscapes. With some 10,000 lakes throughout the state — including a border with the famed Lake Superior — the state offers everything from hiking trails through dense national parkland to views over breathtaking waterfalls. In particular, you should visit Taylors Falls when you rent a car from Minneapolis. Just one hour's drive from the city, this charming town offers peaceful hiking in the heart of forested nature. Alternatively, beautiful lakeside towns like Red Wing, Bemidji and Stillwater are well worth a visit, especially for visitors looking to sail, paddle or row out on the water.

What is there for kids to do in Minneapolis?

Minneapolis has much to offer families with children. With a rental car from Minneapolis, attractions like Sea Life Minnesota, Minnesota Zoo and Valleyfair can all be reached within 30 minutes. What’s more, Fort Snelling, the oldest building in the state, offers an immersive history experience with re-enactments in period costume – under 20 minutes’ drive away with a Minneapolis car hire. There are also plenty of all-weather attractions, like the indoor Nickelodeon Universe in the city’s Mall of America.
