Hi Selective Potential readers! My name is Gracie, and I blog over at Sometimes Gracefully. I’m so happy to be guest blogging for Tieka and to be sharing these images from my adventure to Minnehaha Falls! The name “Minnehaha” comes from words in the Dakota language that mean “waterfall,” but Minnesotans also like to call the falls the “laughing waters.” Mostly because it’s just impossible to say “Minnehaha” without laughing, don’t cha know. ;)
The park has at least a dozen lookout spots that are begging to be Instagrammed, but my sisters and I decided to wander down to the very bottom of the falls and walk along the rocks. I opted to combat the afternoon humidity by wearing this summer eyelet dress from the LOFT. The fabric is soft and lightweight, which means that it’s perfect for outdoor waterfall exploration and won’t weigh you down if you accidentally fall into the river (a slight fear I had, let me tell ya).
Minnehaha Falls and the land surrounding the waterfall was one of the first state parks in the country, so I definitely recommend a visit. The falls are located surprisingly close to downtown Minneapolis, which means that visitors can first explore the falls and then catch a happy hour somewhere in the city! High five!
Thank you so much for following my adventure to Minnehaha Falls, and many thanks to Tieka for the chance to guest blog! Hope you all have a beautiful rest of your day!
