Car Hire Minneapolis

Minneapolis Airport Guide

Minneapolis itself has few attractions of its own although if you’re in the city between Thanksgiving and Christmas the Holidazzle Parade is worth catching on the evenings it is held. Themed nights with lots of lights and loud music make it a great preparation for Christmas.

Outside of the city, camping, walking, cycling and water sports are popular around the city’s many lakes. There’s even a bike trail that has been formed from the bed of an old railway line that crosses the city from one side to the other. If you’re boating or swimming in the lakes you can be reassured for the city prides itself on the cleanliness of the water.


Minneapolis Airport Directions

On leaving the airport head west on route 62 before turning north on route 45W which gets you into the heart of Minneapolis.

Parking is complex at the airport with several options. As well as the usual short term, long term and economy offsite parking you can ‘rent’ your own parking space, use valet parking, book a space online or use cell phone parking.

Minneapolis Info

Minneapolis was built around Fort Snelling on land purchased cheaply from the Dakota tribe. Grain had been milled there using water power since the first century so it was no surprise that within a few years over thirty industries were using the power the waterfalls brought. At one time the biggest producer of flour in the US, it spawned the Pilsbury and General Mills companies. Today industry has shifted towards tourism and the draw of Minneapolis’ natural attractions.

Minneapolis Trivia:
  • Minneapolis is the largest city in Minnesota
  • The name comes from the Dakota tribe’s word for waterfall ‘minnehaha’ and the Greek word ‘polis’ meaning city
  • It’s known as the city of lakes for there are more than twenty dotted around the city
  • It grew on the industry powered by the mighty waterfalls on the Mississippi River at that point
