Minneapolis isn’t your average metropolis; it’s the City by Nature. Only in Minneapolis can you step outside your hotel and kayak the Mississippi River. Minneapolis is a perfect blend of urban chic and natural beauty; a city where outdoor fun is just minutes from your hotel. Rent a bike at one of the many Nice Ride stations and conquer the most bike-friendly city on two wheels. Have some fun on the water at our Chain of Lakes, or walk to St. Anthony Falls and the Stone Arch Bridge to see beauty normally reserved for postcards. And, when the snow falls and the water ices over, strap on some skis or ice skates and glide around our winter wonderland. After exploring Minneapolis’ natural side, you’ll still find the dynamic vibe of a thriving metropolis. Minneapolis is home to restaurants known nationally, with James Beard award-winners cooking up a wide variety of remarkable cuisine. Compliment that with a show at one of our many renowned theaters, boasting everything from Broadway musicals to up-and-coming Fringe productions. Shop our fashionable stores, and enjoy tax-free purchases on all apparel and shoes. Catch a game of any of our five professional sports teams. When the day is done, relax and unwind in our wide array of accommodations, enjoying high-class amenities at an affordable price. In every the season, Minneapolis has enough outdoor and indoor adventure to keep you busy day after day. We’re the perfect blend of urban life and outdoor scenic beauty; we’re the City by Nature.
