The University of Minnesota’s Landscape Arboretum is a short drive from Minneapolis. With its more rural location, the Arboretum has the opportunity to spread and sprawl in a highly satisfactory manner. At over 1100 acres, plan to spend at least half a day exploring this glorious garden. Gardens include:

  • Annual Garden
  • Daylily and Chrysanthemum Walk
  • Fern Walk
  • Hosta Glade
  • Iris Garden
  • Japanese Garden
  • Kitchen Herb Garden
  • Lily and Dahlia Collection
  • Maze Garden
  • Ornamental Grass Collection
  • Peony Walk
  • Perennial Garden
  • Rhododendron Garden
  • Rose Gardens
  • Sensory Garden
  • Spiegel Entrance Garden
  • Macmillan Terrace Garden
  • Woodland-Azalea Garden

Not to mention terraces, greenhouses, a large sculpture garden, a gift shop and excellent cafe. Not up to schlepping that far?  Take the tram for the three mile road tour and see it all without breaking a sweat.
