Minneapolis
Located on both banks of the Mississippi River, Minneapolis salutes the state's love of the outdoors with numerous lakes, wetlands, creeks, and waterfalls--many connected to one another by a national scenic byway great for sightseeing.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Basilica of St. Mary and Chain of Lakes. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Candyland and Mall of America. Get out of town with these interesting Minneapolis side-trips: WineHaven Winery and Vineyard (in Chisago City), Baker Park Reserve (in Maple Plain) and Cascade Falls (in Osceola). The adventure continues: admire the sheer force of St. Anthony Falls, grab your bike and head to Red Cedar State Trail, cruise along Grand Rounds Scenic Byway, and enjoy the sand and surf at The Salt Cave.

For reviews, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Minneapolis vacation planner .

In August in Minneapolis, expect temperatures between 81°F during the day and 64°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sat) so you can travel back home.
