With its many local breweries, urban lakes and lively music scene, Minneapolis has so much to offer that trying to narrow down your itinerary may be difficult. Here are a few spots in the Midwestern city that you should not miss.

Walker Art Center

In this rich contemporary art museum, you’ll find a variety of modern artworks, both by young emerging artists and established, famous ones like Andy Warhol and Edward Hopper. Admission is free on Tuesdays but you will still need a timed ticket.

Chain of Lakes Regional Park

The chain of lakes found right in the city’s center, is one of the things that make Minneapolis unique. You can lounge on the beach, canoe, and paddleboard in the summer, or ice skate in the winter, without ever leaving the city limits.


If you’re looking for a shopping experience that is a little different, look no further than MinneMile on Minnehaha Avenue. This little shopping center is filled with locally-owned shops selling vintage, sustainable and recycled products.

First Avenue

This iconic music venue was made famous by Prince and continues to host over 1,000 shows annually.

Twin Spirits Distillery

The craft cocktails served in Twin Spirits Distillery are an absolute must, and the beautiful 1920s renovated property sure is a plus too.
