Things to do in Minneapolis

Minneapolis grew to fame as the centre of North America's grain milling industry. Today the Riverfront District is more famous for trendy restaurants and the world-class Guthrie Theater. Downtown is a bustling business centre, bordered by the Hennepin Theatre District. But the Mississippi River still defines this city. Journey along the "Mighty Mississipi" on board the Minneapolis Queen.
