Find Your Way Around Minneapolis Airport

Minneapolis, Minnesota isn’t called the City of Lakes for nothing. Twenty bodies of water reside within the city limits, along with many creeks and the Mississippi River. See every one of those lakes, if you so desire, right from the get-go with a Minneapolis airport car rental.

Arrival & Picking Up Your Car

When you arrive at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP), exit your terminal at ground level. We recommend you reserve your car in advance, so you can bypass filling out paperwork at rental company counters. If you’re arriving at Terminal 1, board the underground tram to the Red and Blue parking ramps; once there, take the elevator to the second or third floor. If you’re arriving at Terminal 2, step outside; the Ground Transport Center is directly across the street from the terminal. MSP is within 10 miles of St. Paul and Minneapolis, so you’ll be off on your adventure in no time. If you rent a car at an off-airport rental company, you may need to make additional arrangements to retrieve it. We recommend you contact the rental car agency of your choice prior to your arrival at MSP.

Exploring the City of Lakes

Visit some of the lakes that helped give Minneapolis its nickname. Lake Calhoun, located about 12 miles northwest of the airport, is Minneapolis’ largest lake. At almost 90 feet deep, this lake is a popular spot for kayaking and windsurfing, as well fishing and hiking. Should you wish to learn about the city’s culture, the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden is about 13 miles north of MSP and features over 40 pieces from the nearby Walker Art Center. Wander through some 11 acres of green space and curious pieces, including the famous “Spoonbridge and Cherry,” and snap some pictures of the works that move you.
Your Minneapolis airport car rental means you can head elsewhere, too. Head for St. Paul, approximately 10 miles northeast of the airport. Visit the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory, or witness the stunning architecture of the Cathedral of Saint Paul. You may also wish to steer about 18 miles southeast to Eagan, MN. Ride the waterslides of Cascade Bay, or do some serious shopping at the Twin Cities Premium Outlets.

Returning Your Car & Relaxing Before Your Flight

When you’re ready to bid Minneapolis farewell, return your rental car to the Ground Transport Center. You can either take the underground tram to Terminal 1 or cross the street to Terminal 2. MSP serves over a dozen airlines, including Spirit and Air Canada, as well as several cargo lines, making it the busiest airport in the upper Midwest. If you’ve returned your car to an off-site agency, you may need to check with your preferred provider if you need to book a cab or can request a shuttle to bring you back to the airport.
While waiting for your flight, why not tour the terminals? Admire the numerous pieces of artwork contributed by the MSP Arts and Culture Program, or get a bite to eat at a sit-down restaurant or fast food joint. If you still have a little room in your luggage after the Twin Cities Premium Outlets, snag a Minnesota-themed gift from one of the novelty shops, or purchase a book or magazine to read during your flight.
