If it's daytime or after a lot of rain, I love to walk St Anthony Bridge. If it's evening, I love to catch it up on The Guthrie's balcony. One of my favorite "natural" stops in town!

You don't really see falls like this in the middle of a city. It was interesting to see older pictures, in the Mill City museum, of what the falls used to look like and see how they have changed over time. You get great views of the falls from the beautiful Stone Arch Bridge.

I live just down the road - and never get sick of walking my dog to this area. As a 5-star hotel concierge, this is always the first place I tell people to explore and take photos. A must see for anyone who visits (or lives in) Minneapolis!

If you are looking for something to do outside in Minneapolis this is a place to go. The Stone Bridge you walk on to look at the falls is an easy way with great views of the city, the locks and the falls. You can even bring your animal for a walk. This is a must do!!!

If you are in downtown Minneapolis you must see this. It is a great walk mixing man made architecture and nature. The best time is on the weekends when parking is easy to find

because it's a famous point in the city, so we go there, but it's no longer a natural fall, I think it would be more beautiful and attractive if it has the natural appearance, now it become concrete protected, I know if not using the concrete, the fall will retreat, it may be lost eventually, we joined the tour (you...

Wow! Truly a walk worth remembering. The heritage walk along both banks exposed wonderful nature, old and new architecture, mill ruins, fresh air parks...really made the trip so much better!!

We walked along the falls on top of the bridge. It is busy with walkers, joggers, bikes, and photographers. Interesting historic information is posted along the walk so you can learn a few things as you enjoy the outdoors. Very enjoyable outing.

we went mainly since we knew the falls would be roaring and they were. Spectacular--wish we could have had more time to roam the side trails--the area is experiencing new condos-bar scene was busy--looks like a happening place
