The City of Lakes is consistently ranked as being among the smartest, safest, and cleanest cities in the nation. Minneapolis was recently lauded as having the #1 park system in the nation by The Trust for Public Land. We also recently ranked in the “Hottest Travel Destinations of 2013” list by Travel + Leisure magazine, whose readers also ranked our airport as the nation’s best in 2012. In February 2013, the conservation organization American Forests placed Minneapolis in the “10 Best Cities for Urban Forests.” Bicycling magazine ranked the city No. 1 last year in its “Top 50 Bike-Friendly Cities in the U.S.” list.

So experience our city and see what makes it special.
