150 Things to do in Minneapolis

We gathered some of our favorite things to do. No matter the season, we’ve got you covered.


  1. Overlook the frozen St. Anthony Falls from the Guthrie’s Endless Bridge that jets over the Mississippi.
  2. Cross country ski, snowboard, snow tube or snowshoe in the winter recreation area at Theodore Wirth Park – equipment rental and lessons are available.
  3. Enjoy a scenic walk through Loring Park; it’s the Central Park of downtown Minneapolis.
  4. Run, walk, bike or people watch along the Chain of Lakes.
  5. See the winter lights display at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum or in the fall go apple picking and collect Minnesota’s famous apple: the Honeycrisp.
  6. During the warmer months, hop on a Nice Ride bike at one of nearly 200 Nice Ride stations and cruise down Minneapolis’ 226 miles of bike paths.
  7. Gaze up at Minnehaha Park’s 53-foot waterfall, beautiful when iced over or flowing.
