Minneapolis, Minnesota Family Vacation
Know Before You GoPrinter-Friendly Version
- At a Glance
The Minneapolis-St. Paul area's claim to fame may be the Mall of the America, which -- with more than 500 stores, an indoor theme park, aquarium, and a miniature golf course -- is admittedly impressive. But the Twin Cities also boast a renowned theater scene, plenty of parks and green space, an urban atmosphere, and a unique and highly convenient "skyway" system that allows you to walk anywhere within a 65-block area of Minneapolis without stepping outside. (In frigid northern winters, this is a huge bonus.) While the two cities are located just across the Mississippi River from each other and are connected into one seamless metropolis, the residents will tell you they have decidedly different identities.
