Uptown is a great area to shop, dine, and do other activities with friends and family, it's a hip, clean area and there always seems to be a new restaurant or store everytime I meet up with someone there

I love the diversity of uptown, so many different shops and people. It's a good time to just walk around and people watch if you have nothing better to do, plus the food around there is soo good.

Uptown is a very trendy area shops and eats and home to the Hennepin Art Fair. Parking is at a premium so be ready for some walking.

Cool neighborhood experience with restaurants, shops, and boutiques. There's a great independent bookstore, Magers and Quinn. The Uptown Theater is also worth checking out.

I love the restaurants in Uptown, the renovated area of South Minneapolis, that attracts those looking for new and exciting things to do. Chiang Mai is a favorite. The lights along the boulevard at Christmas are very pretty.
