Downtown Minneapolis

Minneapolis sits at the headwaters of the Mississippi River and is home to the best urban park system in the country (lakes & waterfalls!). The culture is outdoorsy, highly community-minded and ethnically diverse. Downtown is very walkable and accessible, and is centered around the newly renovated Nicollet Mall, a bustling avenue which is closed to car traffic (there is a free shuttle bus that runs up & down) and is home to the Mary Tyler Moore statue and a plethora of restaurants and shops.
