When the water is flowing, don’t miss it. Take the stairs down into the gorge and walk the trail to the Mississippi. The upper part of the park has rentals, a picnic area, the Sea Salt cafe, the historic Stevens House and Minnehaha Depot. Great...More

I went here twice during my week long stay in Minneapolis. It’s a tranquil spot and the falls are beautiful. There are some beautiful paths along the stream.

We stopped here after spending the morning at the Mall of America. It's about a 20 minute easy (mostly residential areas) drive from the MOA. It was a busy Saturday, and the lot nearest the falls was full. We drove further down the road in...More
