Minnehaha Falls Proposal – Tips for proposing

August 20, 2018

Couples, Proposals

A Minnehaha Falls proposal is a great idea ! You will want to prepare for a little city adventure since the falls are located in the middle of the city in Minneapolis.

I have gathered my favorite photos from the proposals in the falls, and a few tips for you!

Proposing at the Minnehaha Falls

Minnehaha falls park is a gorgeous city park featuring a 53-foot waterfall, limestone bluffs and many selfie opportunities! Besides the obvious falls (which are very easy to get to) , there are paths, trees, a bandshell, a restaurant with delicious sea food, ice cream, picnic tables, and playgrounds.

It is an awesome chill spot to go for a half day walk and casually get on a knee and ask your partner to marry you!

Timing

Minnehaha falls is very popular spot, specially in the Summer and fall afternoons and on the weekends. The most popular time I would say is between 10-4 PM. Try to time the proposal for a non-popular day like Tuesday in the later afternoon.   I would avoid it in the weekends for photos, but if you must, I would do early morning (see below for photos, is actually pretty cute too!)

Parking

Parking is tricky because the main parking lot gets very busy. I have marked other spots besides the big paid Parking lot in Godfrey Parkway. I like to park on a little lot (2 in the map) near the Wabun picnic shelters on 46th. Easy walk up the park up to the main Fall. If you go through the main parking lot you will have to come down the stairs

Permits

If you are taking photos with an awesome photographer , make sure your  awesome photographer (ME!) has a Minneapolis Park photo permit.
