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.

Charming, Comfortable Place to Call Home

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for us to stay with our 2 adult sons over a long Father's Day weekend. The location was near parks, coffee shops and great restaurants. It was also close enough that our Minneapolis family could bike there. Lance was great to work with throughout the whole process, and he made sure we had everything we needed to be comfortable. Even though there was always sufficient parking on the street, it was nice to have the garage to park in at night. Our 2 year old grandson now calls this "Jampa's House." We'd love to stay here again. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Owner's Response: Jampa's House. I love it. So pleased to have a new name for this place. And more so that your grandson now has a memory of a place close by that he will be able to visit the next time you come to town. The review is beyond my expectations. I am extremely grateful for your kind comments and for taking the time. I don't think I can add anything. "I couldn't have asked for a better experience" Says it all. Thanks I look forward to having you back in the near future. Minnestay

This house is so lovely, don't miss out!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed the loving restoration/maintenance on this house. The character and charm of it has been so respected during it's modernization. Very comfortable and user friendly. The owner Lance is so responsive and helpful which also enhanced our stay. And then there is its location...so close to everything you want to see! Great breakfast within easy walking distance and then a great Pub for snacks, drinks on the patio and dinner also within walking distance! We enjoyed it so much we will book again!

Owner's Response: I am filled with gratitude. I truly do enjoy receiving such amazing reviews from all the guests. I feel as though the hard work and efforts put forth to make everyone's stay the best possible are definitely paying off. And you are so true about the neighborhood, so many options to choose from all within walking distance and the close proximity of 35W makes going and coming from anywhere a breeze. Thank you again and I look forward to your return to Minnestay . com in the future. With Gratitude, Lance

Great Property!Great Host!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with renting a VRBO and we were not disappointed! The flat was clean and well-appointed and very comfortable! We were in town for a wedding and our only regret was that we did not get to take advantage of all of the amenities or visit the neighborhood more because we were gone (and it was raining!).

Lance was very helpful in assisting us with the rental process as well as in answering any questions we had- before, during and after our stay. There was a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived, which was greatly appreciated after driving through rush hour traffic on a Friday!

We ordered pizza from Pizza Luce and would highly recommend and the breakfast at the Blackbird Cafe was terrific! We will definitely visit there again! Lance also had a guest book of other local establishments that we will check out on a return visit.

This is a great property. It is as advertised in pictures- or better. We will definitely return on a future visit! Thanks Lance!
