As the largest city in Minnesota, Minneapolis skyline pictures show a metropolitan area home to 3.4 million residents and an important Midwest destination for business and tourism. Nicknamed the "City of Lakes," Minneapolis began as a center for lumber and grain milling, shipping and trade along the Mississippi River, and has grown today as the location of a major international airport and home to tourist destination Mall of America.
The tallest buildings shown in downtown Minneapolis skyline pictures include the IDS Tower, Wells Fargo Center, Campbell Mithun Tower, and 225 South Sixth. Another landmark in Minneapolis skyline photos is the Foshay Tower, which was once the tallest building in the city for many decades. The domed roofs of the Minneapolis Convention Center complex can be seen in the foreground of many Minneapolis skyline pictures and are a major destination for conventions and business trade shows in the Midwest. With the equally bustling city of St. Paul not far away and often seen in the distance of Minneapolis pictures, these two downtown regions are known as the "Twin Cities."
Minneapolis pictures show some of the city's major sports venues, including the newly-constructed Target Field, home to the Minnesota Twins baseball team. Close by is the Target Center, which is home to the Minnesota Timberwolves basketball team. Also easily picked out in Minneapolis skyline pictures is the white curved roof of the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, where the Minnesota Vikings NFL team plays and formerly, the Minnesota Twins.
Whether choosing to visit the city for its shopping, business or convention locations, Minneapolis skyline pictures show a city with many things to offer. With over 20 lakes, creeks, waterfalls and parkways, Minneapolis is also a popular Midwest tourist destination for its dedication to the performing arts, music and many art museums as well. Minneapolis panoramic pictures show a city of diverse architecture, with construction spanning from its Mill City era to a modern creative metropolis.
