The Twin Cities on the mighty Mississippi, Minneapolis, and its sister city, Minnesota`s capital Saint Paul, are the economic, cultural, artistic, and educational epicenters of the state of Minnesota. Minneapolis is known for its vibrant arts scene, as well as gorgeous scenes in nature that are not far removed at all from Minnesota`s largest urban core. Saint Paul, described many times as `the most livable city in America`, is known for its museums among other attractions, such as the Minnesota History Center and the Science Museum of Minnesota.

Minnehaha Falls, Minneapolis Institute of Art, Walker Art Center, Como Park Zoo and Observatory, Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, Mill City Museum, Science Museum of Minnesota, Minnesota History Museum, Minnesota State Capitol, Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum, Northwest Minneapolis Arts District, Cathedral of Saint Paul, Guthrie Theater, American Swedish Institute, University of Minnesota, and so much more!



2 nights in Rochester, MN

Rochester is perhaps best-known for the Mayo Clinic, which was founded in 1864 and today is considered one of the best hospitals in the world. The Mayo Clinic also heavily influences the local economy, and recent revitalization efforts have been directly tied to expansion at the Mayo Clinic. Rochester is also well-known for its green spaces such as Soldiers Field right in the center of the city, and is notably one of the few places in Minnesota to lack a natural lake.

Must See`s:
Mayo Clinic, Mayowood Mansion, Quarry Hill Nature Center, Soldiers Field, Rochester Art Center, Silver Lake, Ear of Corn Water Tower, Foster-Arend Beach, History Center of Olmsted County, Heritage House, and so much more!

The Great River Road in Illinois National Scenic Byway clocks in at 550 miles and is arguably the most gorgeous and picture-perfect segment of the drive. The northern segment of the National Scenic Byway passes through East Dubuque, Galena, and Fulton, among other towns and cities, with Dubuque, Bellevue, and Clinton on the Iowa side opposite the aforementioned towns.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Dubuque, East Dubuque, Galena, Mississippi Palisades State Park, Fulton, Fulton Windmill, Grant Wood Scenic Byway, Lincoln Highway, Bellevue, Clinton, East Clinton, Cattail Slough Wetland Preserve, and so much more!
