Minnehaha Falls was/is great with many fantastic photo opportunities - both of wildlife and backgrounds for self shots. Stopped by Sea Salt for a bite to eat - and a beer. Very busy but fast service. Food was good (not great) and a bit spendy. Great place to go to spend a relaxing afternoon.

This waterfall is hard to locate, we have to stop many times just to ask people where the water fall is, we have the map/direction but doesn't tell you exactly where it is, it took as an hour driving around just to find the location, this is our 1st time going here but it's a disappointment, they should've put up...

Huge beautiful park, the falls are gorgeous but don't stop there. Take a walk along the creek there are great walking paths. Parking is .75 per hour and spaces are hard to find. There are bike and buggy rentals I'm the park, and a great little restaurant called Sea Salt.

Trees changing colour to shades of red and yellow. Plenty of space to walk or sit and watch the world go by. Highlight is the waterfalls with good views from both top and bottom. Couple of buildings of historic interest in the park too. No entrance fee but if you drive there is a parking fee.

The highlight of the park is the waterfall. Walk across the top on a bridge or walk next to the water at the base. Plenty of parking and lots of walking/biking trails along the whole park.

This must be one of the best parks in the Twin Cities. It is very relaxing and Minnehaha Falls tops it off.

Minnehaha Park is beautiful and fun to walk around. The falls are amazing and there is a spot where you can walk in the river. It was a fun place it visit.

I really liked the falls. However, we got a little lost at dusk. The trail turned into not-a-trail, without warning. They should have signs as to how far the next bridge is and the difficulty of the stretch. I was wearing flip-flops, it was wet and a little scary. But, very lovely anyway - must see in Minneapolis.

I cannot express how much I love this place. Be it any season, this park and its fall are always awesome. I winter it forms caves and is good to hike for adventurous folks. In summer u may go there to picnic or just walk on trails. Autumn this place is so colorful.
