Minneapolis — 17 nights

The City of Lakes

Located on both banks of the Mississippi River, Minneapolis salutes the state's love of the outdoors with numerous lakes, wetlands, creeks, and waterfalls--many connected to one another by a national scenic byway great for sightseeing.
Venture out of the city with trips to Central Park (in Rosemount), Willow River State Park (in Hudson) and Chippewa Falls (Leinie Lodge & Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company). Next up on the itinerary: admire the sheer force of Minnehaha Park, browse the different shops at Mall of America, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and take in nature's colorful creations at Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.
