Love it here, especially during the summer when the annual Stone Arch festival is in full swing. We live in Minneapolis, but visitors should also add this to their list of places to see when in town. Lovely views, and lots of history too! You can bike or walk over the grand Mississippi River and take in the waterfront sights.

On warm summer days, talking a run/stroll down the Stone Arch Bridge feels kind of magical. The breeze picks up drops of water from the falls, making it pleasant even if it's hot. The city view is outstanding, probably the best in the Twin Cities. Across from downtown, there is St. Anthony Falls with a bunch of nice restaurants and... More

We had the pleasure of biking across the bridge on a sightseeing tour. Our tour guide stopped us on several different sections of the bridge to explain the various surrounding attractions and landmarks as well as to allow us to take pictures. We were treated to such sights as the Mississippi River, Saint Anthony Falls, Guthrie Theater, Gold Medal Flour... More

Beautiful bridge with a great view! It was interesting to see the lock and dam structures and the old buildings -especially the mill district.

This is my favorite place in Minneapolis. Grab a coffee at St. Anthony Main and take a stroll across the bridge making sure to stop along the way and admire the beautiful views. Its right next to St. Anthony falls so that is fun to look at. Also, get a great view of downtown. Lots of people take photos on... More

It's an historic bridge in Minneapolis. Just standing on it watching the skyline for hours is easy to do. It is very photogenic and people friendly.
