Pleasent but a dated walk or stroll

A nice walk during three seasons of our year. However, with the street being reserved for busses only, the smell of diesel exhaust can ruin an otherwise pleasent stroll.

I was in Minneapolis on business, and ventured over to Nicollet Mall one evening for dinner. Things really seem to have gone downhill since the last time I was in the city - to the point that I felt uneasy just walking around on the main streets. There are quite a few homeless that boldly approach for handouts, as well... More

If you remember the show, then you must take the train to 7th and Nicollette and take a picture of where Mary tossed her hat into the air! Train is only $1.75 and takes you from downtown St. Paul to downtown Minneapolis. Well worth the trip.

I was so lucky my hotel was only a block from Nicollet Mall. So many restaurants to walk to. And so many other people walking down Nicollet Mall, as well. I visited in the summer, so nearly all the restaurants I walked by had patio seating on the extra wide sidewalk. The restaurants range from $ to $$$, although I... More

Wow has this place gone to pot. I remember desiring to come here, taking a cab even, from the airport on longer layovers. No need to do that anymore. It's dead.

Besides a few inviting restaurants with outdoor eating between 10th and 11th street, I was unimpressed by the Nicollet Mall. My husband and I did not see any store worth stopping as you could find them in your own hometown mall (Macy's, Marshall's, etc.) I expected some mom and pop or artsy stores but everything was commercial. I was also... More

This has always been our favorite shopping and eating location in Minneapolis. There are a great variety of stores and restaurants, and is well-served by the Skyway system and plenty of public transit. Personally, I much prefer the ambiance of a busy city center over a traditional mall.

There were many great-looking eating places on Nicollet Mall, but besides that there were a few chain department stores and that seemed like about it. I was hoping for more unique, interesting, trendy shoppes and boutiques. The Nicollet Mall experience really fell below my expectations.

We expected the same old variety of stores in an enclosed and probably multistory structure. We were surprised to find that the mall was an area several blocks in size with shops and restaurants (many with outdoor seating). This arrangement eliminates all the crowds you'd expect indoors. Since it was warm outside, 80 in fact, walking through the area was... More
