Good nature in Minneapolis

Good nature
in Minneapolis

The hearty people of Minneapolis love to enjoy the outdoors — no matter the season — and when you’re in town, you’ll find it hard not to join the fun. In the summer, food and music festivals pop up around every corner, and even in winter, you’ll find lively games of broomball outside on the ice.

It’s the perfect place to book a Minneapolis airport car rental alternative, so you can soak up all the spirit of downtown, and head out to find the lake of your dreams.

Minneapolis favorites

For a smaller Midwestern city, Minneapolis has more than its share of lively arts and culture to explore in your Minneapolis car rental.

Guthrie Theater

The best place to see a show in town, this venue books wildly popular music acts and puts on classic and avante-garde theater productions. Check out the Endless Bridge that extends out over the Mississippi River.

Minneapolis Sculpture Garden

Adjacent to the Walker Art Center, you’ll find a host of whimsical sculptures to wander through, including Spoonbridge and Cherry, which has become a symbol for the city.

Paisley Park

Prince was Minneapolis’ biggest rock star, and Paisley Park, his large, mod home, is a delight for any fan to tour. Step into his recording studios to feel his lingering magic.

A trip to the Land of 10,000 Lakes without a few aquatic adventures would be incomplete! Book your Minneapolis car rental alternative on Turo to meander into nature with all your gear.

Book the perfect car
The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness

It’s an outrageously pretty four-hour journey in your Minneapolis car rental alternative to this collection of lakes, streams, and forests that, as the name suggests, are perfect for canoe and camping trips.

Taylor Falls

This popular day trip is just an hour out of town in your Minneapolis car rental. Relax at the St. Croix River, take a scenic cruise, or hike through Interstate Park’s ancient lava flows.

Milwaukee

While there’s plenty of rivalry with Wisconsin, Milwaukee offers a different take on some of the best parts of Minneapolis: great music, tasty cuisine, beautiful parks, fascinating museums.

Amir is the BEST! I arrived in a blizzard and the city of Minneapolis was shut down. He struggled through the snow to pick me up at the airport and drop me off at a hotel. He is incredibly responsive and his customer is stellar. On a scale from 1-10, Amir is a 12! Rent from him! He will always be smiling, regardless of the circumstance.

This is my 3rd rental with Amir and its very easy going. The car: clean, cheap, simple, to the point. If you need something to get around town thats great on gas, then this is perfect for you. It may be old or basic, but it gets the job done. The process: Simple. Amir is flexible with times. I needed to pick it up earlier than the time I requested and he worked with me. The pickup: Easy and sweet. He’ll give you directions on how to obtain the car with no hassle.

What an awesome host; Kyle was more than helpful and willing, and patient enough to teach this first time E-car user! He provided tons of good tips and pointers on charging stations while traveling long distances. Additionally, he gave good advice when, to my own detriment, I didn’t initially follow his sound instruction. He and his wife were wonderfully flexible, helpful and just generally interesting and friendly people. Now I feel like I have friends in the car rental business! It was a win-win situation all around on my end!

Homer's Toyota Corolla was perfect for my 13 day trip back home. The car drives smooth and it was nice and clean when I picked it up. Homer was great at communicating and responds in a timely manner. The only negative was my experience with Turo. I wanted to extend my trip but there was a technical error keeping me from doing so through the app. After waiting on hold for a Turo representative for about 30 minutes, I finally got through. Homer was even helpful through this process with Turo. I highly recommend this rental. Thank you Homer for allowing me to spend time with my family!
