United States Minnesota Minneapolis

Minnehaha Falls

A scenic 53-foot urban waterfall, part of a city park, known for its picturesque beauty and rooted in indigenous and literary history.

Tips from the community

Minnehaha Falls is a Minneapolis classic and a great place to take your date on a day out. The falls sit at the end of a short trail (.4 miles) and cascade over verdant limestone bluffs. There is also a lookout point above the path if you don’t feel like walking down to the falls. If you do enjoy hiking, there are two additional trails inside the park. The falls are beautiful in all four seasons, so there’s no wrong time to visit. That being said, seeing the falls frozen in mid-winter is something truly extraordinary, and you’re a lot less likely to have to share the view with other couples.

Minnehaha Falls Regional Park is home to a 53-foot waterfall that’s beautiful every month of the year. Rent a family-friendly surrey or three-wheel chopper bike from Wheel Fun Rentals and pedal around the park.
