Minnehaha Falls

The focal point of Minnehaha Regional Park, this 53-foot waterfall definitely has the ooh-ahh factor—especially after a week of rain. After snagging a few good photos, peruse the public art, put your feet in the wading pool or challenge your crew to a game of disc golf.

Lake Minnetonka

Lake Minnetonka is a welcome escape from city life, but at 14,500 acres, there’s a lot to see and do. So, for starters, we recommend setting sail on the steamboat Minnehaha, feeding your sense of adventure by geocaching, and boogying down to Big Island, a.k.a the “party cove.” And be sure to wear your swimsuit so you can “purify yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka” like they did in Purple Rain. Downtown Wayzata and Excelsior aren’t far if you’re ready for a fantabulous lunch.





Revival

You can’t go wrong with classic chicken and waffles. And nobody does it like Revival. Start with beer-battered cheese curds or johnnycakes, add in your favorite sides like mac and cheese and hush puppies, and voilà—it’s a meal made in Southern-fried heaven.

ST. PAUL

St. Paul, the ‘other twin’ of the Twin Cities, is where Minneapolis unwinds, undoes its collar and takes time to appreciate the finer things in life. The capital city of Minnesota, St. Paul boasts restored 19th-century civic buildings, laid-back small-town charm and a refreshingly cosmopolitan array of attractions.

 

Bell Museum

Visitors come from far and wide for the fascinating wildlife dioramas, but there’s so much more to this new-ish museum. Hold a 10,000-year old fossil in your hand in the Touch & See Lab, explore the final frontier in the planetarium, and learn about sustainable landscaping outside. And if we were you, we’d end a self-guided tour with a stroll around the enchanting UMN campus.
