Spring is the perfect time to explore new and fun things to do in the Twin Cities. With the days getting longer and the temps rising, there’s finally time to embrace the fresh air and kickstart family fun in Minneapolis or St. Paul.

So ditch the snow pants, and get ready to enjoy one of these five outdoor Twin Cities activities compiled by our AAA Movers team. 

1. Hit the Bike Trails

Over 4,000 miles of paved bike trails throughout Minnesota make scenic bike riding a convenient outdoor family activity in the Twin Cities. Look for a family-friendly flat trail with lots of fun stops along the way. 

In St. Paul, the Harriet Island to Lilydale Regional Park offers a quiet, five-mile ride along a historical route. Enjoy a playground break at Harriet Island Regional Park or a tour of the Sibley Historic site. For Minneapolis family fun, try the Minneapolis Chain of Lakes bike trail. Customize your route to enjoy a refreshing dip at one of the beaches or live music at the Lake Harriet Park bandshell. 

2. Take Me Out to the Ball Game at Target Field

Spending an afternoon at the ballpark is one of the most fun things to do in the Twin Cities. Target Field, home of the Minnesota Twins, provides hours of family fun in Minneapolis. Snap a picture with T.C., the mascot, enjoy a hot dog in the stands or play a game of corn hole on the lawn behind right field. 

Pro-Tip: Sunday games have extra activities for kids to enjoy. There are free autographs and face painting, plus discounted kid’s meals. Stay the whole game and head down to the field to run the bases. 

3. Get Artsy at Art-a-Whirl for Minneapolis Family Fun

The annual Art-A-Whirl weekend in Northeast Minneapolis is a popular Twin Cities outdoor and indoor activity for the whole family. Each May, more than 1,000 artists, galleries, and businesses participate by opening their spaces for tours and interactive activities.

Use this helpful map to guide your walking route with stops at participating restaurants. For the parents, snag a brew from one of the many craft breweries. 

4. Visit a Farm

Many farms across the Twin Cities area offer outdoor family activities throughout the warmer months. At Gale Woods Farm in Mound, learn about agriculture and food production before a picnic lunch by the lake. Historic Eidem Farm in Brooklyn Park provides tours of a restored farmstead and hands-on activities.

Craving some ‘za? Head to one of the many “pizza farms” that serves up delicious specialty pizzas surrounded by picturesque fields and curious farm animals. Many even host live music and other special events.

5. Geocache Through the State Parks

Geocaching is a unique Twin Cities kid-friendly activity that lets the whole family act like modern-day explorers. With a GPS (global positioning system), you can search for hidden containers known as “caches” across the metro area and beyond using GPS coordinates. 

You can try this outdoor family activity in the Twin Cities for free at many state parks that offer loaner systems through the Department of Natural Resources. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes for this outdoor challenge!
