No joke, the City of Lakes - Minneapolis - is considered one of the top cities to see in the entire nation and as a travel nurse you owe it to yourself to explore all it has to offer. Minneapolis boasts a gorgeous outside world and is home to environment-conscious citizens who work to protect that beauty. Minneapolis has even been noted on an international level for its ideal state - inspiring natural scenery accompanied with booming cultural diversity. This is truly a city you must see to believe!
Minneapolis is graced with breathtaking lakes and shimmering, crystal waterfalls. Just being outside is rewarding enough - you'll be making up excuses to spend your days outdoors. Of course, with over 150 parks and a number of activities to choose from (including biking, jogging, and rollerblading), you shouldn't have that much trouble.
You'll also be able to enjoy fine entertainment in a city so well versed in art and culture. The Guthrie Theater is a shining example of the city's artistic awareness. The performances here are top-notch, and classes designed to instruct in dancing, acting, and other stage-related activities are offered for all age groups. You can also entrust the Minnesota Orchestra to provide you with unmatched musical performance. Recognized even outside the country for its brilliance, the Minnesota Orchestra breathes excellence and continues to impress audiences of all backgrounds.
If you're up for a day of shopping, Gaviidae Common should definitely be one of the first places you visit. This mall features a nice variety of stores you wouldn't expect to find normally - but that you'll of course be delighted to stumble upon. The mall is open Mondays-Fridays from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm, and closes an hour earlier on Saturdays, giving you plenty of time to investigate all the neat surprises that make Gaviidae Common noteworthy.
When you're looking to savor a dinner away from home, you'll discover there's more than one way to spend your evening. There's the Ichiban Japanese Steak House, famous for teppanyaki cooking - the chefs slice, dice, and prepare your meal right in front of you! Make a reservation at the Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant to dine on mouthwatering steak and specially-prepared seafood while you get to hear the greatest jazz musicians of all time weave soul into song. The exotic delicacies of Spain are served up at Solera; on top of offering delicious new dishes, this stylish restaurant also entertains its guests with live DJs every Friday and Saturday night.
Minneapolis is also home to one of the greatest teams in the NFL. If you're a Minnesota Vikings fan, you know that they were on fire this past season, actually making the playoffs. For fans of this team, there is nothing more motivational than The Metrodome, located in downtown Minneapolis. The ingeniously designed stadium was created with the Vikings in mind, and there isn't a single sports fan who's visited Minneapolis without entering the infamous home of the Vikings. Don't miss the opportunity to see this luxurious masterpiece firsthand during your stay!
