A FORMER INDUSTRIAL CENTER, MINNEAPOLIS HAS TRANSFORMED INTO A MIDWESTERN CULTURAL HUB.

Built around the Mississippi River, Minneapolis bases much of its identity on the sparkling rivers, lakes, and wetlands that surround it and fill its many public parks. Once built on industries like flour-milling and timber production, it’s now one of the US’ most creative and cultural cities.

Whether frozen into crystalline stalactites, or rushing over its limestone lip into a froth of mist, Minnehaha Falls is the jewel in the crown of Minnehaha Park. Overlooking the Mississippi River, the park is one of the city’s oldest and best-loved. In spring, wildflowers bloom, while, in autumn, the leaves of oak, elm, and silver maple transform into a display of color. The park offers a wealth of amenities, including concerts, picnic shelters, walking and bicycle trails, and volleyball.

THE ELECTRIC FETUS

Few record stores are still surviving in the age of streaming music, but Minneapolis icon the Electric Fetus is nearly as popular today as when it first opened. A counter-culture hub of the 1960s Twin Cities, the store remains a heart of the city’s vibrant music scene, hosting both up-and-coming bands and established acts for special performances. Prince was just one of the store’s many notable fans and regulars.

WALKER ART CENTER

The unmistakable whimsy of a Claes Oldenburg piece has become the signature image of the Walker and the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. Remarkable for its breadth, the Walker is engaged in ongoing conversation with all facets of contemporary artistic and cultural expression. The visual arts (painting, sculpture, video, and installation) are represented, as are the performing arts of theater, music, dance, and film. Lectures and discussions actively invite the participation of the community.
