Minneapolis Convention Center

Minneapolis is the City by Nature, the perfect blend of natural beauty and urban sophistication. No other American city has a chain of lakes, the nation’s best parks, and 200 miles of walking, biking and cross country ski trails – just steps from the most vibrant arts and music scene outside New York City.

Minneapolis-Nice-RideOpportunities to experience the best of the city and the best of nature are around every corner. Rent a Nice Ride bike and conquer “The Most Bike-Friendly City” in the country on two wheels. On your ride, check out St. Anthony Falls and the Stone Arch Bridge to see the kind of natural beauty normally reserved for postcards.
