Minneapolis Travel Guide
Welcome to Minneapolis!
This WorldWeb.com travel and tourism guide for Minneapolis, featuring hotels and other accommodations, tours, attractions, events, shopping and more, will help you plan a successful visit to Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.A.
Minneapolis, a modern city perched on the west side of the Mississippi River, is recognized as one of the cultural and entertainment capitals of the United States. Its downtown area is the heart of the Twin Cities, and the skyline is made up of attractive high-rise buildings, many of which are linked by a series of enclosed overhead walkways called skyways. Cheer on the NBA's Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target Center or delight in the theatrical arts at one of the city's many venues. Dining options in Minneapolis are seemingly endless as the downtown core alone gives travelers the option of just about any kind of cuisine one could think of. Art centers, galleries, and museums are abundant and of high quality. The Minneapolis Institute of Arts is a free-of-charge center focusing on the history of art, particularly European. Minneapolis is the larger of the two Twin Cities, and features a more modern scene, physically and culturally, than its neighbor St. Paul.
Located in a restored 1920s Tudor Mansion, this museum displays exhibits that explore the history of electricity in various cultures, and also houses a collection of rare books and an instrument collection.
