The Grand Rounds Scenic Byway explores the best of Minneapolis’s copious scenery, culture, and history on a collection of manicured parkways, bike paths, and quiet streets through the city’s seven byway districts. This squiggly, 33-mile loop (or choose a shorter route) follows the country’s longest continuous system of urban parkways, past mirrored glass skyscrapers, showcase flower gardens, a vibrant chain of lakes, and the iconic Mississippi River. Take most of a day and roll this route like a wide-eyed kid on a balloon-tired cruiser—stop often, soak in the city’s vibe, take a wrong turn on purpose. Ain’t it grand?
