Know more about Minneapolis
Irresistible sights, a picturesque city layout and plenty of artistic (with a side of quirky) activities: these are only some of the reasons why Minneapolis is the perfect destination to head to for some much-needed rejuvenation. The city is home to no fewer than thirteen lakes, many of which are interlinked by the aptly-named Grand Routes Scenic Byway – a series of park areas that lie in a roughly circular route within the city. If you’re lucky enough to get your hands on cheap airline tickets to Minneapolis, don’t forget to spend some quality time taking in the city’s breathtaking views.
Popular Tourist Attractions
Endless Bridge – A one of its kind observatory, the Endless Bridge is neither endless nor a real bridge. However, the name notwithstanding, head to the cobalt blue Guthrie Theatre where the bridge begins, for one of the best views of the Mississippi. While you’re there, don’t forget to catch an interpretative performance at the theatre (complimentary, since this is a public performance space) and lend your support to the performers.
Water Power Park – The park extends right into the Mississippi, so close that you can almost feel the spray. A picnic at the Water Power Park is the perfect way to unwind on a balmy afternoon, as you feast your eyes on the Minneapolis skyline and the impressive hydro-power generators that have been generating electricity for the past 120 years.
Minneapolis Institute of Arts – A treasure-trove for art buffs, the museum encapsulates the history of the city’s effervescent cultural heritage. With more than 80,000 works displayed at the museum in permanent and rotating exhibitions, the museum is also home to prominent works by Édouard Manet, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin, among others.
Minneapolis Sculpture Garden – Art comes to life at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, which is studded with several notable works, including the acclaimed Spoonbridge and Cherry by Claes Oldenburg. These are beautifully offset by the vivid blossoms of several exotic flowering plants at the Cowles Conservatory. To keep the young ‘uns entertained, the garden also has a mini golf course that lets the little champions tee off amidst the exquisite sculptures.
World's Largest Ball of Twine – If for nothing else, get on cheap flights to Minneapolis to view the world’s largest ball of twine, rolled by a single person over 29 long years. Located in Darwin, 60 miles west of the city, the ball is on display at the town gazebo.
