  • If your inner botanist is calling, this is the spot. Free, relatively unknown, and very tranquil, save for the occasional amateur wildlife photographer. A surprisingly lengthy yet compact trail system that takes you through zones of forest, river, prairie and meadow. Flowers may or may not be super abundant, and probably depends on the time of year. Lots of shady parts, if you're escaping summer heat, and benches in abundant supply if you can stop texting for a moment and just take it all in. Who knows, some critter not often seen might scurry by. I would recommend obeying the signs that tell you to not venture off the path, especially if you're allergic to poison ivy.
  • Beautiful, peaceful. A wonderful place for a walk, peaceful contemplation, shade. Lovely retreat after a hard day
  • Historic oldest wild garden in US. Thank the intelligent ones before us that saved this area from the developers and nurtured it for us today.
  • Small set of trails trough the woods. Keep a lookout for signs describing the various plant like indigenous to Minnesota. Great place for the kids or group of adventuring hippies.
  • A beautiful walk with many instances to just sit and take in the view.

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.
