Lake Luster: Minneapolis, Minnesota

3 of 11

It may not have the same draw as The Hamptons or Miami, but Minneapolis has a Midwestern charm all its own. It’s artsy with a great dining scene, and home to thousands of lakes that access visitors to an array of water sport activities. You can windsurf, canoe, sail, swim, or bike around your lake of choice. Then, explore the town. We recommend inhaling a signature Jucy Lucy cheeseburger at Matt’s Bar and getting tickets to the Children’s Theatre Company (it won a Tony Award in 2003 for Outstanding Regional Theatre) or a baseball game.

Stay: The Grand Hotel (on the site of the historic Minneapolis Athletic Club) has a pool and plenty of kid-appreciated amenities.
