Art lovers have plenty to see at the Minneapolis Art Institute, Walker Art Center and the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum, which all house world-renowned collections. The theater scene is thriving. With more than thirty theaters, Minneapolis has more seats per capita than anyMinneapolis Hostel U.S. city except New York. See a Broadway show and enjoy dinner and live jazz at a fabulous restaurant. With kids in tow, check out the Science Museum of Minnesota, where visitors can produce their own video, or come face to face with a shark at the Under Water Adventures Aquarium.

Uptown Minneapolis

Hip Uptown is full of buzzy gastropubs and fashionable bistros, as well as stores and independent Minneapolis Hostelboutiques selling contemporary designer clothing, vintage garb, furnishings and locally made gifts. The classic Uptown Theatre screens indie and foreign movies and has a bar. Nearby, walking and cycling paths encircle Lake Calhoun and Lake of the Isles. Hennepin and Lake, more popularly known as simply “Uptown,” functions as a kind of life path rest stop. A steady rotation of young people have come and gone, arriving during or right after college and departing for home ownership when marriage and babies come around. The eating, shopping and nightlife mostly cater to this energetic age group, but there’s something for everyone, not the least of which being the Chain of Lakes, which is like Minneapolian catnip when the temperature is above freezing.

Lake Life Liveliness

Minnesotans celebrate the outdoors like few other cities. Sure, we like our winters, but the first time Minneapolis Hostelthe temperature pokes its head about 45, the shorts come out (no kidding) and people flock to the lakes and parks. The Chain of Lakes is the city’s most popular of our many, many parks. (By design, no Minneapolis resident lives farther than six blocks from a park.) It’s also a key component of the Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway, a 51-mile loop composed of parkways, trails, and the Mississippi River Boulevard. It’s the only scenic byway in the country located entirely within an urban area. The chain is composed of Lake Calhoun, Lake Harriet (arguably the two most popular lakes in the city), Lake of the Isles, Cedar Lake and Brownie Lake. They all have bike and pedestrian paths, boating docks, boating, kayaking, gardens and picnic areas. Also available at some lakes are facilities for archery, fishing, tennis, soccer, volleyball, grills, skiing paths, ice rinks and hot food.
