At 740 acres, gigantic Theodore Wirth Park is the largest park in Minneapolis. There are year-round activities, including cycling, golf, archery, soccer, tennis, sledding, cross-country skiing, fishing, picnicking and pretty much any other activity you can imagine in a huge, grassy space. There’s also a garden, bird sanctuary and a beach. Theodore Wirth Parkway is a component of the Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway, a 51-mile loop composed of parkways, trails, lakes and the Mississippi River Boulevard. It’s the only scenic byway in the country located entirely within an urban area.
Utepils Brewing's massive taproom and beer garden not only serves a variety of German, Czech and Belgian beers, but there’s also food trucks and events like “Beer + Yoga” and “Brushes & Brews” for those who feel that any activity is made better with a pint in hand. Their beer is made with water from the city’s historic Glenwood Inglewood wells.

La Doña has plenty of space to socialize, they even have an outdoor area with a mini soccer field to get game going with group or practice some drills.
