Minnehaha Park

 

Recently topping the list as the most charitable city in America, Minneapolis is a welcome change from the fast paced clamor of other big cities. Also known for its artistic visage, this β€œtown on the prairie” has all the glory of liberated endurance. Topped with swank art museums, more than enough theatres and ethnic and organic eateries, it has rightly earned its name as the β€˜Mini-Apple’ of the present day.

Looking further into the beauty of Minneapolis will unfold a gamut of natural beauty and tranquil locality. One such place that has captured nature at its finest is the Minnehaha Park. Situated at the intersection of Hiawatha Ave and overlooking the Mississippi River, this park has the privilege of being one the most oldest and popular parks in the city and manages to attract over 850,000 visitors per year.

Featuring lime stone bluffs, river overlooks and a 53-foot waterfall, this 193 acre park also contains a myriad of trees such as Cottonwood, Silver, Oak, Maple and native as well as prairie woodland wild flowers. Fast becoming a popular site for weddings, this park offers the visitor the freedom of many activities including picnics, concerts, wading pool, disc golf course, volleyball court and bike trails. If this is not enough, the park also houses several sculptors and is recognized to be sacred ground for American Indians.

Millennium Hotel Minneapolis would be considered an ideal place to stay for visitors looking to explore the park. Snug on the tree-lined side walks of Nicollet Mall, this downtown Minneapolis hotel is within walking distance to entertainment and shopping centres such as the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, the Metrodome and Target Center. Providing services such as indoor swimming pool and business centre, this Minneapolis hotel offers the guest a touch of class and elegance with creative cuisine and signature decorative style.
