Popular Minneapolis Spring Activities
Minnesota winters are just one of the reasons people living in Minneapolis MN homes love spring so much! As soon as temperatures move above freezing, people take to the outdoors to welcome spring and warmer weather. You’ll find plenty of great outdoor activities from art enjoyment to dining delights. Here are a few of the many popular options.
A great way to kick off the season is a visit to the Walker Art Center’s Sculpture Garden. This iconic spot is home to the Claes Oldenburg Spoonbridge and Cherry sculpture, which is an Instagram favorite. With more than 40 works of art on display, there’s plenty for everyone to enjoy, plus, entry is free.
For some natural beauty, head to Minnehaha Regional Park and Falls, especially now that the melting snow and ice ensure the Falls put on a spectacular show. After taking in the view of the falls, enjoy time in the park hiking, cycling, or just relaxing with a picnic.
Another family friendly activity is a visit to the zoo. The Minnesota Zoo and Como Park Zoo both have plenty to see and do, particularly as this is the time of year there are often new additions to the zoo families. The Minnesota Zoo shows off its Farm Babies exhibit, where you can see baby piglets, lambs, goats, ducks, and chicks. Meanwhile, the Como Park Zoo goes with flora as well as fauna with beautiful flower shows in the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory. There’s also the spring opening of the Como Town Amusement Park, an outdoor play area for kids from ages 2-12 with rides and attractions.
With your lovely new kitchen, you’ll be inspired to start cooking and where better to find some delicious and often local items than at one of the farmers markets. Typically opening in late May, you’ll find markets all over the city, including downtown along the city’s main street, or near one of its historic museums by the Mississippi River. Home-grown produce, prepared items from local vendors, and more Minnesota-made items make a trip to the farmers market a delicious and bountiful way to spend part of your day.
Of course, you can always catch a Minnesota Twins game at Target Field, enjoy outdoor dining and drinks at the many rooftop/patio bars and restaurants, and take scenic bike routes along the many excellent bike paths. When you live in one of the Minneapolis MN homes, there’s always something to do, especially outdoors in the springtime.
