    We stayed very closed to Loring Park when we went to a conferance. So, we took a walk to Loring Park. It was a very beautiful park. Very relaxing.  more »

    Peaceful area to stroll and sit and sightsee while ending at the park. Shady and cool on a hot day. Quiet place for reflection.  more »

    I go here every year to celebrate Twin Cities LGBTQ pride! I absolutely love it. Pet friendly, child friendly, amazing passionate people standing together to celebrate and fight for human rights. There's plenty of space to walk around and do various activities.

    A beautiful park in all terms! This place offers outdoor playgrounds, a nice big lake filled with geese and ducks, and a wonderful garden that will never bore my eyes! There much more to this place than the things mentioned in this review. Get out of the boring closet and read your books here!

    The park overall has a nice vibe. Great place for a picnic or just to hang out by the fountain. There's also some fun events that happen around the year.

    If you want to fish they have a fishing pier. The rest of the lake has too much vegetation around it and lots of green slime around the edge of the lake. If you are going there to walk the paths....great park.

    The grass is in great shape for an urban, downtown park. The grass is not beaten down by excessive foot traffic. The park is clean and well-maintained.

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.
