With Memorial Day less than three weeks away, I’ve got summer on the brain. One of my favorite warm weather spots in the metro is Minnehaha Falls. Situated right off the light rail line and close to the Mall of America, the Minnehaha Regional Park is the ideal place for enjoying some time outside.
Visitors can take the stairs/trail down to get an up close view of the 53-foot waterfall, or they can meander around the park area exploring river overlooks, limestone bluffs and historic buildings such as the Princess Depot, Longfellow House and John H. Stevens House. There’s also a variety of walking trails leading to Fort Snelling State Park, as well as gardens, picnic areas, a disc golf course and art sculptures.
If you have a hankering to dine on some fish, the park’s seasonal Sea Salt Eatery is open from April to late October in the Minnehaha Park Pavilion. Serving a variety of fish entrees and craft beers, the restaurant is a popular spot to grab a bite to eat—plan ahead there’s often a very long line!
Now, if we could just get this rain to move out of town…
