Ways to Practice Social Distancing in Minneapolis

Get Active: Hiking, Biking and Running

Get out and stretch your legs while you can! While spring weather starts making its way towards us, it is the perfect time to get a workout outdoors while gyms and other workout studios are closed. Try some of our favorite scenic biking routes and the best running and hiking trails around Minneapolis. Please note, because of the warming weather, a lot of Minnesotans are taking to the outdoors for a breath of fresh air and a break from their homes. This means walkways and popular outdoor locations are likely to be busier than usual. Please continue to practice social distancing in these settings, remaining at least 6 feet away from passerbys and others near you.

Enjoy Nature: Parks and Gardens

If you're not feeling much like heart-pumping physical exercise (we understand), try taking a stroll through any one of the city's best parks and public gardens. Best enjoyed spring through fall, we're not called the City by Nature for nothing. There's some things only Mother Nature can truly help! Please note, because of the warming weather, a lot of Minnesotans are taking to the outdoors for a breath of fresh air and a break from their homes.
