Metro Minneapolis Accommodations

The Metro Minneapolis area is the largest urban center in the state of Minnesota and the 48th largest in America. Being less than an hour’s ride from Lake Superior and Lake Michigan, Divided by the Mississippi River and not to mention surrounded by various smaller water bodies on either side, the city is aptly nicknamed the “City of Lakes.” Vacation rental accommodations in Metro Minneapolis are never too far from the water.

While vacation rentals are available near many different lakes, some of the best beaches are reputed to be at Medicine Lake and Lake Calhoun. The former, situated in the western part of the Metro area, is part of a city called Plymouth and less than a half hour away from the core of Minneapolis. Sporting several playgrounds and lengthy bike trails next to the shore, the lake is a sure hit with adults and children alike. The latter is even closer to Minneapolis’ downtown core and is known for offering sailing, wind surfing, canoeing, fishing, and even in-line skating. Reputed to draw massive numbers of tourists, the lake was at one point the second most popular destination in America. With the lakes mentioned above and countless others in and around the Metro area, all condo rental accommodations and lodging are guaranteed to be within biking distance of summer swimming hotspots.

If splashing around in the water is not your thing, or you simply want to take a break, Minneapolis offers a host of activities that promise to keep your clothes dry and your interest piqued. The region boasts a market for live theater behind only New York and Chicago, and is home to the Minnesota Dance Theatre that is reputed to have educated the singer Prince in its arts. If you have an ear for music, make sure to check out the Minnesota Orchestra at the Orchestra Hall and the MacPhail Center for music. For the sports buff, the city has five professional teams including the Minnesota Timberwolves of the NBA and the Minnesota Vikings of the NFL. Regardless of where your interests lie, a vacation rental accommodation in Metro Minneapolis is certain to appeal to you and your family.

A tapestry of trails and pathways adding up to over fifty miles of ideal walking, jogging and biking thoroughfares are woven into the fabric of the city, making it perfect for anyone wanting to leave their accommodation and get some exercise.
