Neighborhoods
A charming old neighborhood on the border of Minneapolis and St Paul, this tucked away area is considered a hidden gem of the Twin Cities. A bustling neighborhood retail corridor offers gourmet restaurant options, a walkable, locally owned and operated supermarket, gift shops as well as professional services and civic institutions. The hilly terrain lends itself well to a rich blend of architectural styles and unique landscape solutions that will keep things interesting on your evening stroll.

Sightseeing
For the last two weeks in August, you are within walking/biking/bus shuttle distance to the second biggest state fair in the country, locally known as “The Great Minnesota Get-Together”. My favorites are the Miracle of Birth building, the Lumberjack Show, the Llama Costume-Contest and the Art Show. The nightly concerts I. The grandstand are always pretty rocking, too! As for food, the porkchop-on-a-stick really is worth standing in line for, the scotch eggs are my favorite, and you can’t forget Sweet Martha’s cookies. Just don’t eat them all before you’ve made it to the free all-you-can-drink milk station.

Great for an evening stroll or bike ride, Lake Como offers picturesque views and many opportunities for recreation. Enjoy the lake from a paddle boat, kayak, canoe or take your fishing pole out on the pier and try your patience. Grab a bite to eat before you catch a community show at the Pavillion.

Food scene
The green curry is incredible. The green beans? To die for! And don’t get me started on the curry chicken fried rice. Don’t let the generic exterior turn you off - if you like quality Thai food, this place is worth your time.

Entertainment
Although the beer hall is temporarily closed, this is still a great venue for seeing music shows in the summer and fall. Food trucks, local beer, and good tunes…who could ask for more?

Ground zero of the music scene in Minneapolis. Best indoor spot for big names that like smallish venues.

Nature
Both paved trails and dirt paths, there is plenty of space to ground yourself in nature - by foot, by bike or by hammock. Challenge yourself to the upper hike around the lake or hit the pump track with your mountain bike. Dip your toes in the Mississippi or take a book and a hammock.

Wonderful to witness in all seasons, the Falls are nestled in a lovely park with miles of trails, good (seasonally open) food, and lots of places to unwind. Connects up with Fort Snelling if you want to extend your adventure into the Waters where the Mississippi and Minnesota Rivers meet.
