Minneapolis—The City of Lakes

Famous for its beautiful chain of lakes, Minneapolis also boasts a thriving downtown with world-class cuisine, Broadway-caliber theaters and top-notch shopping (apparel is tax free!). Named one of the Downtown Collagecountry’s most walkable cities in the country, Minneapolis is easy to explore and enjoy, and October is a beautiful time of year in which to visit.

Step outside the hotel onto Nicollet Mall—a pedestrian avenue spreading 11 blocks through the heart of downtown Minneapolis. As you stroll down the Mall, you will find sidewalk cafés, top-name shops and shopping malls, and some of Minneapolis’ premier restaurants.

Explore the Riverfront District, where historic buildings, scenic parks, cultural venues, dining and shopping line the banks of the Mississippi River. Later on, experience a Broadway show in the Hennepin Theater District, or enjoy Downtown’s nightlife in the hip Warehouse District.

Minneapolis is an unexpected treasure that offers the sophistication of a major urban city combined with a lush, natural environment.
