Minnehaha Falls

Tucked away near downtown Minneapolis is Minnehaha Park, the city’s oldest park that features along the limestone bluffs and river overlooks a gorgeous and misty waterfall that drops 53 feet. Which is a pretty decent size for a waterfall located about 15 minutes away from downtown, if you ask me.

Big bodies of water, whether they be oceans, lakes, or rivers, tend to make my heart swoon, so I thought that maybe the roaring sounds of the waterfall would somehow magically prompt Baby B’s heart to do that same. A little mother-daughter bonding exercise, you might say. Sure, she was probably asleep during the entire experience, but I’m pretending the little kick she gave me as I neared closer to the water was something along the lines of her offering me a little baby fist bump.

Right on, Baby B.

As if visiting the falls wasn’t enough, Minnehaha Park also offers visitors some seriously beautiful gardens to walk and trails to bike. There’s even a charming seafood spot (the Sea Salt Eatery) overlooking the falls that has an awesome selection of fish tacos and baskets. Darrin and I walked through the Pergola Garden while a local band blasted dance music from the bandstand, and we vowed to return to try our hand at disc golf on one of the local courses.

A waterfall, disc golf, music, and seafood.  All in one place?

Bravo Minneapolis. You can bet we’ll be back once Baby B arrives. Some things just need to be seen in person.
