Walked this way

Came through here on the way to the Mall. The street is a nice stretch of Minneapolis near the shopping mall.

Nicollet Avenue has everything you could want - restaurants, pubs... even Target! It's a must for any Minneapolis visitor. Even if you don't intend to, you'll probably end up there anyway.

Nicollet looks like it will be a fun place to shop and eat after they are finished with the construction. I really wanted to throw my hat up in the air and have my picture taken while doing that....but they must have removed her during the construction..If we are ever back, I'll try finding her again!

Lots of construction around, so it probably detracted from the beauty it would otherwise possess. The area is busy and very energetic, there are some shops, and lots of restaurants. I am not sure that it is any more special than any other downtown Mpls street.

There's some good restraunts,typical stores. There's something lot of construction going on and the Mary Tyler Moore statue has been removed to accommodate the constriction, but you can see some of the buildings from the show.

Ill break this into 3 areas; The Mall, Eat Street, and far South Minneapolis. 1. The Mall is downtown and a nice walk with the usual downtown stores. Average 2. Eat Street is the area south of 18th and has quite a few restaurants that are worth the trip 3. Far South (south of 62nd) dont bother

I drove into downtown because there were nearly a dozen things I wanted to see. I don't know if I would make a trip specifically for the statue or not, maybe without my kids, but definitely walk over there to snap a picture if you're in the area.

Undergoing renovations with some street parking and expensive parking in a structure. See the Mary Tyler Moore tribute statue not far from Nicollete Ave and several other buildings featured in the sitcom. Nice peaceful end, touristy, shopping and restaurants. Have fun!

Minneapolis at it's best -- sights and sounds of a city in action!! It's a fun place to gather and share with guests, free concerts, shopping, new library, farmer's market, businesses, light rail and bus accessible.

Thank Kathy S
