    Would like a bit more signage on the sidewalk . Easy to get on the light rail system-blue line. There was a restaurant- huge line.

    Very nice experience to see a baseball match. More interesting than expected. Even more with the Yankees playing, a team I only saw in the movies until now. But of course we supported the Twins, the local team. Beers and food far more expensive than tickets.

    Short walk to see the falls. About 100 steps to bottom and can walk along River. There is a restaurant here and you can rent the 4 seat pedal bike cars. Worth a visit for sure!

    We visited on a Friday, and it was pretty busy with the school kids. There is a lot of information about the mills in Minneapolis, and about providing flour for the war efforts. My father would’ve enjoyed the Flour Tower a lot more, if there was some sort of monitor with closed captioning. Even I had a bit of trouble understanding the words that were being said with all the background noise. I know there was a sign about how to adjust your hearing aids, but that did not mean anything to him. The photo display regarding George Floyd was an added bonus.

    You'll find people strolling around these lakes during all seasons. You'll almost always see some animals here; muskrats, birds, bats at twilight. The paths are beautiful, with separate paths for bikes, and you can stroll right across the lakes in winter. All the lakes are in nice neighborhoods with lots to explore, and the trails are safe and clean. All of the lakes also have beautiful views of downtown Minneapolis; the view from the bridge on Isles is my person favorite

    We came to the lake to take Master Eight to the playground. It would have been nice to walk around the lake, but Master Eight was sadly not inclined to be dragged away from the play area, and it was probably too cold for us Sydneysiders who had just come from more summery temperatures. We enjoyed marvelling at the frozen water, though it was sadly too thin to walk on in early April.
    I can imagine it would be a lovely area to go for a walk when the weather warms up (for those accustomed to more temperate climes, anyway; we spotted some locals in shorts, so they were clearly enjoying the relatively milder weather compared to that of the deep winter months). There is a bandstand by the water and I’m sure that outdoor concerts here in the summer would be very picturesque.

    The parking lot is in front of the museum and free. The museum is not big, a mansion with other exhibitions inside. I was very impressed by how beautiful the mansion is. The hall and dinning room are truly stunning !!

    It may take you a bit longer to get to your destination but when it is pouring or freezing out, these walkways are a godsend.
    Fun way to wander around the city as well but keep in mind that they do close early most nights.

    Unfortunately the 'Basilica of St. Mary' was closed when I visited one afternoon when exploring downtown Minneapolis, (it seems to only open in the mornings until 1pm). However I did get to have a good look around the Basilica's exterior. Built 1907-1914 this Basilica is significant as it was the first Basilica to be established in the USA.

    Large beautiful lake, fun to walk and bike around. Trails are pretty good. It’s a busy place sometimes but it really varies.

    Beautiful lake, good walking and biking trails. Extra fun to see the large fancy houses nearby. If you’re in the city and need some green space, it is here!

    Recently,I returned to Minneapolis and I spent three hours enjoying the Museum of Russian Art.I saw fine paintings from the permanent collection by these 20th Century Russian Painters;Mikhailo Khmelko("Motherland Greets A Hero"),Stanislaus Kreiz("On Native Shores"),Akhmed Kitaev("Among The Birch Trees"),Dmitri Kantorov("Falling Icarus"),and Valery Yershov("Gorbachev").I enjoyed the paintings of these Russian painters realizing their creativity was somewhat suppressed.
    I saw impressive Contemporary Russian Art temporarily on display by Lenoid Sukov("Lenin and Giacometti"),Natalia Nesterova("Pastries"),and Ludmila Belova("Pastorale"),among others.
    There also was a fine exhibit of photography depicting Americans living and working in Siberia.
    in short,the Museum of Russian Art is a less discovered treasure in the Twin Cities.
