Until I visited, I hadn't realized that Minneapolis had so much vertical topography, including scenic Minnehaha Falls, over 50 feet tall, in the park of the same name. There's a footbridge that goes across the top of the falls, and one can walk down fairly steep but short trails to get to another footbridge at the bottom of the falls.
Some of the park has manicured landscaping, and some is more wild. Walking and biking trails abound. There are a number of historic sights: the first house built by a settler in Minneapolis; a cute little train station that was called the "Princess Depot"; and even a historic sign above the falls telling the amusing story of how President Lyndon Johnson toured the park during a drought, and to make sure the falls looked impressive, the city turned on fire hydrants along the creek to increase the waterflow!
Near the falls is a large cafe and a bike rental place. The park is easily reached on the light rail line. There's even more to the park that I didn't have time to visit. It's not as huge and feature-filled as say Central Park in Manhattan, but it's still a gem. And Central Park doesn't have a 50-foot waterfall.
