Located minutes from downtown Minneapolis, Minnehaha Regional Park features bluffs and picturesque river overlooks. But the centerpiece is the iconic 53-foot waterfall, where visitors can watch as the water dives over the edge and crashes into the pool dozens of feet below. Follow the rest of Minnehaha Creek via trails as it winds its way through colorful trees, flowers and shrubs before coming to an end where it meets the Mississippi River. After all that hiking, grab a bite to eat at Sea Salt Eatery, a seasonal restaurant located next to the falls, where they serve a variety of tasty menu options including soups, salads and entrees all with a seafood twist. Be sure to save room for dessert as they serve up delicious Sebastian Joe's ice cream as well. Other features include a disc golf course, picnic area, volleyball court, Longfellow and Minnehaha Falls Pergola gardens, and a bandstand.
