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.

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.
