Wish we could have been there when it was warmer, but to see the falls with snow still around them in May was incredible.

It's a fun trip to do if you have nothing else going on and wanna get out of the house. It's pretty cool to go behind when it's frozen, but it's illegal so you may get caught and get a ticket. There's some walking trails and some bikes and stuff.

One of the easiest "Best Days" in Minneapolis is a visit to Minnehaha Park in Summer or Winter. The history and natural beauty found near the "little laughing waters" is why this park has long been my favorite place to pass time contemplating the passage of time as the seemingly ceaseless flow of water from Lake Minnetonka makes its way East to eventually join the Mississippi as it has for centuries. Walking down the stairs to follow the creek all the way to the Ford Parkway Dam and back is a pleasant walk with paths that make it passable for almost every ambulatory individual.

Many times, we brought our boys to walk through this park to the Mississippi River. Minnehaha Creek drops over a precipice to form the falls, and then drops to the river. A statue of Hiawatha and his beloved are near the top of the falls, and the last-chance chain for a canoeist who has ventured too far, to grab befor plunging over the falls, rivet the attention. The walk beside the stream as one descends to the Mississippi is quiet, and it's difficult to remember one's in the middle of the city. The view of the river from the shore, and perhaps a passing barge, is quite dramatic.

There are trails to walk all the way to where the creek meets the river. Great place for summer walks and picnics.
