Minnehaha Falls picked as one of the world’s 55 most ‘breathtaking destinations’

When it comes to “breathtaking destinations,” there are the popular, obvious ones.

The streets of Paris, France. The mountain peaks and pristine waters of Colorado. Petra in Jordan, one of the seven wonders of the world.

Those are all on this Expedia list of the 55 most breathtaking destinations in the world.

And so is Minnehaha Falls.

The waterfall in south Minneapolis, which is 53 feet tall and visited by 850,000 people every year, was selected by the viewfinder travel blog for a couple reasons.

Here’s what they wrote about it:

“The name of these waterfalls may make you giggle just a little, but their beauty is no laughing matter. Wander into Minnehaha Park on the south side of Minneapolis. You’ve already heard about Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes. Well, the waterfalls are just as lovely. Minnehaha Falls actually freeze in the winter and you can walk behind many of them, like an icy alcove.”

It should be noted walking behind the falls is illegal and not advised. Also illegal and not advised – kayaking over it in the summer, like this guy did.
