The City of Lakes

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. Minnesota's largest city, Minneapolis is also the bigger half of the so-called Twin Cities. Together with St. Paul, the city forms one of the largest metropolitan areas in the United States, claiming nearly 4 million residents. Once a major hub for logging and flour milling, Minneapolis now ranks as a top business center between Chicago and Seattle, housing a high concentration of some of the world's most successful corporations. This cosmopolitan city includes many diverse neighborhoods, each with its own distinct cultural character and set of attractions. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Minneapolis trip itinerary using our United States driving holiday planner.

Where to stay in Minneapolis

To stay in the thick of tourist action, choose a hotel in downtown Minneapolis. This area offers many independent and chain hotels, with rooms that range from budget-friendly to high-end. You can also stay close to the area by exploring mid-range hotels just a few blocks from downtown that are set in quieter neighborhoods with fewer tourists. If you have access to a car and don't mind driving to most major attractions, you can consider a good value motel or inn just outside the city.
