Your Guide to Minneapolis, MN

Minneapolis, Minnesota is a sprawling metropolis filled with enticing things to see and do, whether you’re traveling solo or with the entire family. Frequently referred to as the “City of Lakes,” Minneapolis has a sense of hometown pride and friendliness you won’t find anywhere else. Get to know that pride—and the lakes—with a cheap car rental in Minneapolis.

Where to Go

Hop behind the wheel of your Minneapolis rental car and find out exactly why this place is called the City of Lakes. Lake Harriet, Lake Calhoun, Lake of the Isles, and Cedar Lake are all within a few miles of one another, and all provide fantastic photo ops. Don't forget to plan a day around some of Minneapolis's museums; the Mill City Museum, for example, contains exhibits about the history of the city as well as the state, and is built on the site of what was once the largest flour mill in the world. Of course, if you’re a baseball fan, your summer vacation should include a trip to see the Minnesota Twins play at Target Field, located in the downtown area. Football lovers can catch a Minnesota Vikings game at TCF Bank Stadium—you’ll love cheering on “The Purple Pride.”

Marvelous Minnesota

You can stay in the city during your trip, but true adventurers will roam around the state. Fort Snelling is 11 miles to the southeast, and is the perfect place to learn about the area’s military history. Thirty miles north of the city is the Oliver H. Kelley Farm, a restored living farm dating back to 1860. Stop by to learn about the extensive history of American agriculture.
When you’re in need of a break from nature, check out the Mall of America®, which is located in nearby Bloomington, 12 miles south of Minneapolis. This is the largest indoor shopping center in the United States, so use some of the money you saved by renting your car here on CarRentals.com to scoop up some souvenirs for your friends. With over 500 stores, the SEA LIFE® Aquarium, the House of Comedy, and more, the Mall of America® truly has something for everyone.

Made in Minneapolis

Originally inhabited by the Dakota Sioux, the area that became Minneapolis was first incorporated in 1867. Its location near Saint Anthony Falls and the thick forests of Minnesota quickly established Minneapolis as a milling empire, with much of its industry powered by the waterfall. On a slightly gruesome note, Minneapolis developed something of a side trade in prosthetic limbs due to the inherent danger of the milling industry. As the years trudged on and steam and electric power overrode what the Falls could provide, the “Mill City” slipped. Over the last few decades, it has focused its attention on restoring its remaining historic buildings and crafting a downtown area.

Keeping Warm in Minneapolis

If you’re renting a car in Minneapolis during the winter, make sure you’ve got snow chains and a good heater, because this city turns into a glittering winter wonderland. The average high temperatures are in the upper 20s and 30s in this season, though sudden plunges to the single-digits are not unheard of. Average annual snowfall is around 45-50 inches, and freezing rain and sleet are frequent enough to make note of. During summer, meanwhile, you can expect heat to hover in the 70s and 80s, though spikes into the 90s do happen with some frequency. This is also the season when Minneapolis gets most of its rain, so bring an umbrella.
