Overall Guide : The city boasts of a spectacular landscape and is home to numerous parks and lakes, all interconnected by biking, walking and driveway paths, often running parallel to each other on the route of Grand Rounds Scenic Byway. These offer ample... more opportunity for activities such as swimming, boating, fishing, ice-skating and picnics. The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, with exhibits on world history, and Frederick R. Weisman Arts Museum, which showcases modern art, are sure to fascinate art and culture connoisseurs. Guthrie Theatre features performances from famous international artists, and the Mill City Museum presents the city’s flour industry through audio-visual exhibits. The Minnesota Zoo is the second largest zoo in the US and is home to birds and animals from five continents, including many rare and endangered species. Also worth visiting is the Mall of America.
