Way up north in the frozen state of Minnesota lies the vibrant city of Minneapolis. Known for its intelligent residents (it was named the most literate large city in the U.S in 2015), literary and musical contributors (F. Scott Fitzgerald, Bob Dylan and of course, Prince all have roots in Minneapolis and neighboring St. Paul) and its culture of volunteering (in 2011 it was recorded that 40 percent of the city’s residents took part in volunteer activities). While intense, the cold certainly doesn't overshadow Minneapolis's attractions and history.
The Minneapolis Institute of Art is a famous museum featuring more than 80,00 works of art and artifacts, the oldest of which date back over 4,000 years. The museum makes a strong effort to appeal to kids and to break out of the “boring art museum” mold. Football fans can catch a Vikings game at U.S. Bank Stadium. The Chain of Lakes is a system of paths and trails that line the banks of three beautiful connected lakes. There’s nowhere better to celebrate the coming of spring. Just outside of Minneapolis in nearby Bloomington is the mall of America, the largest mall in the United States where you can do anything from shop to check out an aquarium. The city is also home to the University of Minnesota -- one of the largest universities in the U.S.
Downtown Minneapolis is the place to stay. With access to great restaurants, theatres museums and nightlife, it checks all the boxes.
Winters are freezing, but summer temperatures jump into the 80’s. The best time to see the city is in May and June when winter fades away and everyone is taking advantage of the sunshine.
