Second-closest co-op. A little more expensive, but it does have bulk tahini and a good deli (and tasty shakes and smoothies in back--yes, vegan!)
The city's largest library, with well-known (if not my favorite) architecture. Usually library functions, and many buses stop there

Beautiful bike trail.Sad that the fort still fires hourly, which serves as a reminder that it was (and is) seated on Native American sacred ground. Right past Minnehaha Falls. Worth a respectful trip
