This area is a little dated, but still a pretty cool place for shops and eateries. If you're downtown and nearby, it is worth the stroll. A friend and I strolled through a few blocks on the way to and from Target Field. I would advise going during the day because you'll have more shopping/restaurant options and the area appeared...

Heart of downtown Minneapolis, Nicolett Avenue was a nice street to walk down and take in a bit of this city. Gives you access to some of the stores located down this street (Marshall's, Macy's, Gavidae Common, Target, Off Saks Fifth) and also has many pubs and cafe's along this stretch. Little fountains/sculptures/green spaces along the way really adds character... More

I was a little disappointed. Thought there would be a lot more specialty stores instead of stores you can shop at Mall of America. They did have many restaurants but personally preferred the ones on 1st Ave. It is a must see just to say you've been there, but I personally found it a little dissapointing.

Did not feel safe on a summer Sunday evening. Surprised to see such a rough crowd. Homeless man shaving in Barnes & Noble bathroom when my son and husband when in.

There is not much difference between this and the Nicollet Mall review. There are some great places to eat but you will need to call ahead if you have a large group.

Stroll down the mall...do a little shopping...have a drink at a patio bar/restaurant...catch a performance at the Dakota or Orchestra Hall or walk a couple blocks for a Twins game. No better way to celebrate summer in the city. The Mall is aging but better than ever. I am excited to see if they will really put the money in... More

Some parts are a little creepy but going toward downtown it gets better. Food and shopping throughout but more toward downtown and in downtown.

Nicollet Avenue is fun to stroll up and down during the evenings. There's plenty of restaurants and bars to stop at along the way. If you're into food or into drinking then there'll be something there for you - from super high end ($$$) to low end ($).

We love walking along Nicollet Mall. Target, Barnes & Noble, Marshalls, plus the quaint shops. Only bummer is it was Saturday and many restaurants were closed in the skywalk.
