From amusement parks to art galleries, Minneapolis has a variety of attractions that will satisfy anyone’s cultural diet.

Its music scene gave birth to Prince and Bob Dylan. It has an endless slew of local breweries and oh-so-delicious restaurants for your liking. The smattering of urban lakes make it stand out among the crowd of American cities, so free things to do in Minneapolis calls for an action-packed schedule.

Here are some of the best things to do in Minneapolis this weekend!

 

#1. Como Town

Como Town is a family-friendly amusement park surrounded by a charming community of 1930s housing and is located in the Midway area of St. Paul. It has 19 rides that aim thrill seekers at a young age. This family-friendly haven is surrounded by play areas and a 384-acre park with ample picnic place, as well as Como Lake in the middle, which is surrounded by beautiful paved trails.

#2. Midtown Greenway

Minneapolis is one of the top biking cities in the United States. So rent a nice ride and pedal your way through the Midtown Greenway. Experience the joy of biking through the 5.5-mile paved lane. This lane includes a section for walkers and runners that makes getting around via bike a convenient option for all.

#3. Minneapolis Sculpture Garden

Create memories and snap a picture in front of the Spoonbridge and Cherry at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. The park is filled with enthralling sculptures by the famous Richard Serra. You can spend your entire afternoon strolling around the art. You don’t have to worry about paying for anything. It’s free! Great for pictures and just taking it all in, especially during the Summer.

#4. Stone Arch Bridge

You’ve probably seen this bridge in photos with the mention of Minneapolis. Constructed in 1883, the former railroad bridge is the only stone bridge along the entire Mississippi River that connects the quaint St. Anthony Main neighborhood with downtown Minneapolis. Take a morning jog or night stroll on the Stone Arch Bridge. You can walk your dog or ride a bike over the structure at any time of day, but the views are particularly gorgeous during sunrise and sunset.

#5. Uptown Theatre

If you love watching movies, then head on to the Uptown Theatre. And you what’s cool about this place?  If you’re on a date and you want to make it special, there’s a bar upstairs that is equipped with a couple of Grain Belt Nordeast beers. Since 1978, the Uptown Theatre is operated by the Landmark Theatres and plays all varieties of movies.  From new releases to foreign films and indie flicks, so you are sure to find a film liked by both you and your date.

#6. Minnehaha Falls

Hike your way up to a beautiful waterfall at Minnehaha Falls. Minnehaha Falls is found along the Mississippi River where Minneapolis borders St. Paul. It is a natural wonderland that will make the city seem a million miles away. All guests should hike to the waterfall to experience the wonder of nature, which looks wicked and cold in the winter as well. If you have a dog, you’re in for a treat because the area is also home to a giant dog park and offers river swimming for your puppy.

If you’re always on the go and you don’t have the time to clean your house or apartment, you can always consider hiring a trusted and professional house cleaning service! They’ll give you a spotless home in no time, so you don’t have to worry about a thing.
