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.

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

Charming home, central location and an excellent host!

  • 5 of 5

This property is charming with comfortable beds, very clean and stocked with everything you need. Front sun room is a great spot to drink coffee. Icing on the cake - you can rent bikes from Lance and ride around the lakes. The location is great (very close to uptown) with lots of parking out front and walking distance from a few great restaurants. Don't hesitate to book! You will not be sorry. We're never staying in a hotel again.

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, Lance. We can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: Another fantastic review. I truly do enjoy reading all the lovely comments Minnestay guests leave. This unit has amazing beds that are memory foam and the sun room is also a favorite of mine. The seven restaurants within walking distance have so many different options it is sure to please every palette. I am glad to hear that Minnestay has converted another hotel patron that now prefers vacation rentals. I look forward to having you stay again in the near future. With Gratitude, Lance

Perfect Home Base

  • 5 of 5

Me, my husband and our two daughters visit Minneapolis every summer and usually stay with a relative, so this was the first time we sprung for our own place and I'm so glad we did. When we arrived there was a bottle of wine and glasses waiting for us. Nice touch. A few additional highlights:

* Good, central location (tho technically not in Uptown as my husband was quick to point out)

* Short walk to restaurants and shops

* Nice interior spaces, comfortable / huge flat backyard with shade sails

* TVs in every room—perfect when you want the kids and adults to be able to enjoy their own separate spaces

* Tons of street parking

* Washer and dryer

* Kitchen with everything you need to cook and entertain

* Lance is very quick to respond, he never left me hanging when I emailed a question

We stayed for a week and there was one day that we literally did not leave the house. We had visitors coming and going all day and it was just a great place to gather and hang out. Pretty sure we won't be staying with relatives... ever again.

Owner's Response: Thank Heaven for relatives. One of Minnestay's stables is guests visiting friends and family in town. I am just so happy to read that this unit worked out so well for you and your family. Minnestay properties prides itself on equipping the units with everything you would want when you are staying away from home. We want to make it a home away from home and look forward to having you come back the next time you come to Minnesota. With Gratitude, Lance
