Minneapolis is one of the very top vacation spots in Minnesota, and it offers up one of the more cultural experiences in the state. Top attractions include the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Walker Art Center, the Basilica of St Mary (the oldest basilica in the US), the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, the Mull City Museum, and the Guthrie Theater. Minneapolis is also known for hosting lots of fun festivals - from  Gasthof's Oktoberfest to the Art Car Parade. Plus, there's plenty to do outside - like a river ride on the Mississippi Queen, canoeing on the Lake of the Isles, or watching a baseball game at Target Field.


Lounging by Lake Minnewaska in the summertime, and ice fishing on it in the wintertime - Glenwood lake rentals are a great idea any time of year. If you visit during July, don't miss out on Waterama, a favorite local fest. Golfers will also enjoy the area, as they'll have two championship courses to choose form.
