Minnesota Zoo

Minnesota Zoo

Explore Minnesota’s exciting zoo and see over 2,700 animals for yourself in their ‘natural’ environment. Be sure to experience the Discovery Bay aquarium center, which is made up of a maze of underground tunnels and walkways, where you’ll be able to see some of the greatest wonders of the deep close-up.
Do & See

St Paul Curling Club

This winter sport is popular in the Twin Cities. Visit the St. Paul Curling Club and watch how the players slide the hubcap-sized ‘puck’ down the ice, aiming for the target. While the intricacies of the game may seem a bit foreign at first, it’ll definitely be a unique experience to see the ‘pitcher’ shouting at the ice brushers.
Walker Art Center

Walker Art Center

Minneapolis boasts the fifth most-visited museum in the United States, and one of the few to still offer free admission (except for special exhibits). The impressive permanent collection features 20th century arts and photography, US and European painters of all genres and one genre the US is particularly famous for – pop art.
Do & See

Fort Snelling State Park

Also known as the ‘City of Lakes’, Minneapolis is far from a concrete jungle. With beautiful parks and outdoor areas, the Fort Snelling State Park is only one of the many in the region. Situated where the Mississippi and Minnesota Rivers meet, the historic Fort is the state’s oldest structure. Enjoy a tour from knowledgeable guides complete with period dress.
Do & See

North East Art District

As in most cities, the worn down industrial areas sooner or later become the new hot spots after they've been established by the creative crew. Minneapolis is no exception. The Northeast Minneapolis Art District is home to a great number of artist studios, art galleries and performance spaces. Walk around this unique neighborhood distinguished by picturesque, family-run businesses, rail yards and industry, kitschy watering holes and a wide range of restaurants. Many of the area’s old industrial buildings have been re-purposed as working spaces for over 400 artists.
Nicollet Island

Nicollet Island

This island in the middle of the Mississippi River lies just north of Saint Anthony Falls in Minneapolis and has a population of 144 (2000 U.S. Census). The island is a showcase for beautiful architecture and natural landscape as well as The Bell of Two Friends, a gift from Japan, and the Nicollet Island Pavilion event center, located in Nicollet Island Park and built in 1893 as the William Bros. Boiler Works.
