Walker Art Center
This is a really cool spot, but in the summer you can find many walking through the Sculpture Gardens that are right next to the Walker Art Center, which has the Iconic Cherry that Minneapolis is known for!
The Walker is Minneapolis’ contemporary art museum. It also hosts an outdoor sculpture garden as well as mini golf in the warmer months. Don’t miss the iconic Cheery and Spoon!

“The Minneapolis Institute of Arts boasts an impressive selection of Impressionist paintings. Originally constructed in 1915, the Institute has been amazing gallery-goers with its substantial collection of over 85,000 pieces of American and European artists' works for roughly a century.

With free admission, there is no excuse not to check it out.”
“Check out the Endless Bridge for awesome views of the Mississippi and St. Anthony Main in the warmer months. Theater options for your cultural event enjoyment. And a neat little gift shop if you're just wandering through!”
“Nature paths and the falls make this a great place for a quick visit, or a longer event. ”
“Lake Calhoun is in a lively neighborhood near downtown and worth a visit. You can walk around the lake and enjoy nature and city atmosphere. People do all sorts of summer and winter activities in Lake Calhoun. It is very happening and you can see people there all year round. It is a favorite urban lake for Minnesotans. ”
