Skiing in MINNEAPOLIS with kids

Don’t for a second think Minneapolis is all ice, ice baby! It’s far from it, and has a ton of family friendly places to visit that kids will love. Don’t forget Minneapolis is a twin city with St. Paul, so you essentially get two for the price of one! Bargain!

Minneapolis is a cultural playground, with the Bell Museum of Natural History, Weisman Art Museum, and the incredible Minnesota Children’s Museum all ready for kids to have a great time (which kids love) whilst learning (which parents love!)

Worried about the weather in this northern city delight? Stop right there! Attractions such as The Depot gives you the best of both worlds. In wintertime this old train station transforms into an incredible indoor ice-rink. In the summer kids can splash about in it’s indoor waterpark!

Minneapolis also has activities such as the indoor Vertical Endeavors rock climbing perfect for winter, and the stunning Minnehaha Park which gives you 193 acres of waterfalls and rivers to enjoy through summer! 

Get ready to take on the twin cities - because they’re ready for you!
