Welcome to Minneapolis

Minneapolis is part of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis-Saint Paul. It's a land of 10,000 things to do. The area enjoys four distinct seasons, offering a true variety of experiences. Take in an outdoor music festival. Be awed by ancient gallery artifacts. Dine at one of the many sidewalk caf├ęs. Or, ice skate on one of the city's 22 lakes.
