Minneapolis Things to Do: 292 reviews and 540 photos

{taken from a forum post of mine}

Within the twin cities area, there's still lots of good parks. You could go over to the area around Lake Calhoun and either walk the old neighbor hoods or rent a canoe and paddle through the connecting lakes (Lake Calhoun, Lake of the Isles and Cedar Lake). Its quite nice with the city skyline in the distance.

If you are into historical sites, you could also visit Fort Snelling which is not far from the airport.

If you are looking for a day drip, something that is much closer, but worth it in my opinion, go over to the town of Stillwater on the river at the border of Wisconsin.
