Minneapolis is the heart of the state and a city with plenty to share. Downtown is where all the action takes place but if you want to uncover the city's immigrant and working-class history, head to the northeast. Here's a little taste of what to see and do while in Minneapolis.
Minneapolis Institute of Arts: Minneapolis is home to one of the finest collections of art in the country. The collection has a very impressive Asian art section. Best of all, admission is free!
Stone Arch Bridge: This old railway bridge is now a cycle and pedestrian throughway and offers some pretty great views of St. Anthony Falls, the reason why Minneapolis is where it is today.
Nicollet Island: Located in the city's northeast region, this is where you'll find some of the city's historic old victorian houses. There's so much character in the neighbourhoods here, it's also a great place to find a boutique hotel.

Minneapolis has plenty of choice when it comes to finding a place to rest your head at night. The downtown area has plenty of independent and hotel chains. If you're visiting Minneapolis without a car hire, best not to choose a hotel too far from the city centre.
