Beautiful - lots to see and do

This place is spectacular. On a warm, sunny spring, summer or fall day, it's one of the most beautiful places in the metro area.

This can be a drive through destination, a walk through destination or a combination of both. We did a drive and walk combination -- but it could have been drive and wheel-chair or walker. The guest center is inviting and there is often an art exhibit featuring native plants and animals. Don't be distracted by the drive time, it is... More

paid to the U of M to run the place, I was expecting much more. It's a gold mine for the U of M and a rip off unless you need cute backgrounds for photography..

I spend a lot of time at the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum because it is a place of great beauty and solitude. There are so many things to do at the Arboretum, from snowshoeing in the winter to seeing maple syrup tapping in the late winter to walking along Three Mile Drive year round to see the seasonal changes...

The Arboretum has lots of opportunities for people who like the outdoors. There is a three-mile walking/driving trail that takes you past most of the specialty gardens with ample parking along the way to get out and explore. There are seasonal events both inside and outside. They range from leisurely teas to snow shoeing and cross country skiing. The Arboretum... More

The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum is one of the most beautiful, relaxing, yet invigorating places in the Twin City area to go to, to get away from the hub-bub of daily living. It can be for a half and hour or for a half a day. When my 7 year old grandson complained about having to go to the Arboretum, afterwards... More

The Landscape Arboretum is a beautiful place to visit all year round. Don't let the snow in MN stop you - on a clear, 30 degree day it is a restful and enjoyable place to walk around, just like during the spring and summer. A must stop of you love the outdoors.
