Waterfall
Meander among manicured lawns and forests overlooking the Mississippi River at Minnehaha Park, one of Minneapolis's oldest parks. Visit the site's famous 16m (53 ft) waterfall, and enjoy a picnic in one of the many areas available. You can take a trail that leads from the upper falls all the way down to the river and appreciate elm, silver maple, and oak trees along the way. Don't forget to check out the Longfellow House Visitor Center, which houses a small collection of historical photographs and provides useful information on the area and its history.
