Minneapolis climate

The optimum time to take cheap flights to Minneapolis is best summarized thus: any time but winter. Unless, of course, you happen to be an extreme cold-weather enthusiast…

When to fly to Minneapolis

Peak Season:

Summers can be hot and humid but nevertheless make for the best time to take cheap flights to Minneapolis when the area’s many lakes and beaches come into their own.

Fall brings out enthralling foliage displays throughout the city bringing memorable displays of color to the historic Riverfront District.

Off Season:

In a word, it is winter. Minneapolis is known for the harshness of its winters during which the temperatures can plunge to a bone-chilling minus 48 degrees Celsius.  However if that does not put you off, plan for indoor activities to break up the amount of time spent in the cold. Remember too that winter temperatures in Minneapolis can continue well into what much of the world calls spring.

Getting around Minneapolis

If you’re only staying in downtown Milwaukee, you can get around by foot just fine. To see the rest of the city’s attractions, renting a car is your best bet.

Minneapolis insider information

  • The Minnesota Fringe Festival, a celebration of live stage performance and visual arts with an emphasis on theatre, dance, performance art, puppetry and storytelling, takes place annually. Last year’s Fringe saw about 1,000 participating artists and 15,000 attendees.
  • The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden is run by the Walker Art Centre in conjunction with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. The 4-hectare park is best experienced in the spring or fall.
  • It is an obvious mention but the Mall of America, the largest one in the US, is nothing short of a shopper’s paradise. More than 500 shops, an amusement park and an aquarium all conspire to put immense pressure on visitors’ wallets though a measure of relief can be gleaned from the fact that there is no sales tax on clothing and shoes in Minnesota. It may be an idea to bring an extra bag on your cheap flights to Minneapolis.
  • The Great Minnesota Get Together kicks off annually for a 12-days stretch in August and September. Like many a State Fair worth its salt the highlights feature food, animal exhibits, concerts, competitions and crafts.
