Downtown Minneapolis: Thriving Performing-Arts Scene near Idyllic Lakes

Downtown Minneapolis is more than just the geographic epicenter of the city—it’s the cultural heart too. Sports venues home to the Timberwolves, Vikings, and Twins neighbor the lively nightclubs of the Warehouse District and the neon-lit marquees of the Hennepin Theater District. In recent years, the city’s arts scene has gotten a lot of attention, and for good reason: Minneapolis has more live theater shows per capita than any other US city except New York. Additionally, dozens of eclectic galleries complement the wide-ranging exhibits at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, which showcases everything from Japanese woodcut prints to turn-of-the-century European advertisements.

To navigate downtown with ease, step into the Skyway, the city’s ingenious solution to harsh Minnesota winters. The Skyway is a network of indoor, aboveground tunnels connecting a slew of buildings downtown. A popular stop along the way is Nicollet Mall, a shopping thoroughfare where cars are not allowed. This is where you’ll find the iconic statue of Mary Tyler Moore tossing her 10-gallon Stetson into the air.

Nicknamed “The City of Lakes,” Minneapolis has 22 natural bodies of water within the city limits. A 10-minute drive from downtown brings you to the picturesque Chain of Lakes, which are surrounded by 12 miles of walking and biking paths. In the summer, the Lake Harriet band shell hosts summer concerts, which frequently include the renowned Minnesota Orchestra.

Great urban place to stay. Love it.

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely stay here again. Beautiful and comfortable accommodations. Well stocked kitchen and bathroom..shampoo, conditioner, hair dryers. On busy Nicolet Avenue however home is set back so far and it was very quiet. Loved the front sunroom. Spent a lot of time there reading, etc. Fantastic place.

Wonderful find in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this great unit in Minneapolis. The owner, Lance, was extremely accommodating and went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. I've stayed in many VRBOs but this was the most attentive service I've ever received. Bed was comfy and the unit is spacious and clean. Close to all the twin cities have to offer. Would definitely stay here again!

The Best!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this VRBO a number of times, and it is always the best stay ever! It is clean, comfortable, so close to restaurants, and minutes from the highways to get to other locations. The owner, Lance, is so responsive, and it's just a joy to spend a weekend here. Highly, highly recommended!!

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

Lance was an exceptional host. This place has everything you could possible need and is in walking distance from many great restaurants. The lakes aren't too far away, either, which make our stay even more enjoyable. Lance was incredibly responsive and make sure we were well taken care of. House is adorable, well maintained, and incredibly relaxing. We would definitely recommend this place!

Owner's Response: WOW, the word exceptional throws me back. But I will take it. Thank YOU. Minnestay works hard to insure we have all you could want while you are on vacation. And this property is close to Lakes. Roughly a mile, so a short walk and you are enjoying one of the many treasures, Minneapolis has to offer. And we have bikes to rent as well so you can go further on your daily outings. Thanks again for the lovely words and I cannot wait to have you return. With Gratitude, Lance
