We visited Minnehaha Falls and Park and had a great time at the end of July. We viewed the falls and then walked the trails next to the water to where the water dumps into the Mississippi River. From this location, you can see a lock and dam that is just upstream a bit. We spent some time on the... More

Minneapolis is a beautiful and unique city with so many sites to visit that it can be easy for a visitor to miss some. Minnehaha Park should be near the top of each visitor's list. Located a stone's throw from the Mississippi River, it offers a large peaceful park surrounding the lovely falls. (I find the falls to be most... More

Minnehaha Falls is a fascinating scene both winter and summer. In the winter you will see the ice build as the falls continues flowing. In the spring the water is in abundance and the falls are beautiful. Sometimes in a dry season the falls will slow to a trickle but there is always something to see and a food stand... More

This is esp impressive if there has been lots of recent rain, the falls rage then! It's a beautiful and popular park - food, live entertainment, beautiful landscaping and great hike to the river once the waters go down. It's a must-see IMO and a hop off the light rail line.

Beautiful waterfall, though it does get low at times if there hasn't been enough rain fall. Nice place to hike/walk, scenic and safe. Excellent restaurant nearby and can rent bicycles (that seat 1, 2, 4 or more!)

Its a great place for a run and had a lot of hiking trails and biking paths. We had some friends visiting us and this is one of the first places we took them. They really enjoyed their time.

We are first time travelers to the city of Minneapolis. Friends told us about the falls and to be honest I didn't think they'd be that nice, being in the middle of a major city. I was so wrong. The park is much bigger than I expected, the falls were grand, and the trail to the Mississippi was a beautiful... More

We rented a bike to get around the park and had a great time. The bike wasn´t to expensive and worth the money, you could of course just enjoy a nice stroll here as well. There is plenty of grass to go around and the Minnehaha Falls are very nice.

The falls were running strong. It was pretty. We were from out of town but they were easy to get to and the park was really nice. You could get food there too. Although we had eaten and didn't look.

Bring a picnic lunch or pick up lunch at the restaurant right in the park, there is also a grill right across the road with a sign that says "Eat our meat across the street!" This park is everything my fellow reviewers report it is. We caught the Light Rail which has a stop right across the street and took... More
