Day trips from Minneapolis

Because Minneapolis balances a concrete jungle and a nearby nature reserve, there’s an adventure for everyone within a day’s drive.

Brooklyn Park

Brooklyn Park has something for everyone. From golf courses to rec centers to ATV paths, this gorgeous park holds activities to please everyone. Summer camps here also mean fun things for children too. It’s only a 20-minute drive outside downtown Minneapolis, so you can rent a car here to drive around the gorgeous, historic Eidem Homestead acreage.

Mall of America

America’s biggest mall offers so much more than just shopping. It has an indoor theme park, a Hard Rock Cafe, and a Lego store. It’s only a short drive from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, but you could spend all day here exploring arcades, mirror mazes, and art galleries before dining on fine sushi and browsing books at a huge Barnes and Noble.

A Day at the Lake

With so many lakes, there’s always a water activity close by, no matter the season. If you visit during warmer weather, enjoy kayaking, swimming, and jet skis. If you visit when the lakes have already iced over, try cross-country skiing or hockey. Naturally, fishing is a year-round option.

St. Paul

Minneapolis’s next door neighbor and “twin city” also has some amazing attractions. The famous St. Paul’s Cathedral towers next to Como Park Zoo, both historic places. You can take a free tour of the Summit Brewing Company before heading on over to learn about the mighty train industry at Union Depot.

Stone Arch Bridge Festival

This annual festival has been going for 25 years and won’t be stopping anytime soon. It’s become a major attraction every June with its concerts, car shows, street performers, food carts, art galleries, and more.

Luxury Car Rental

Whether you’re looking to impress or you just want to travel in comfort, a luxury car rental is the best way to arrive at your destination.
