"So much to do and so little time."

Hennepin County is simply amazing. Wether you like outdoor activities or indoor activities we have you covered. No doubt Hennepin County has the best parks and trails anywhere in the US. From biking to running, rollerblading, sailing and more, you can do it all here. Minneapolis also has a vibrant nightlife and restaurant scene for foodies. With Lake Minnetonka and the "city lake" of Calhoun, Lake of the Isles and Lake Harriet you are sure to get your water fix. Winter time most people are as active as in the summer with x-country/downhill skiing, ice fishing and much more. Don't forget our outstanding art and theater scene that is also outstanding, Come see for yourself. Hennepin County has it "going on".
