Nice area to check out. Much more relaxed local area than downtown. Tons of bars and restaurants. About a 15 min. car ride there.

The Lake St. area stretching 3/4 mile in each direction from this intersection has cuisine and architecture of all sorts, and a vibrant but not deafening ambiance. Generations of re-purposing of buildings has not spoiled charm I recall from 50 years ago.

I like this area of Minneapolis. I usually make a stop at CB2 and the Kitchen Store and then walk along and stop in the shops that are around that area. Calhoun Square. Lots of eateries to choose from.

Nice assortment of shops, friendly people (giving me directions), I shopped, had a bite to eat and walked to Lake Calhoun, Walking back I picked up some groceries at Lunds and Byerly and took a Lyft home...Fun day.

One of my favorite places to go shopping, or have a drink, or just walk around and window shop. Uptown has a very eclectic and vibrant vibe to it that is very appealing.

Uptown has many restaurants, bars and shops as well as banks and grocery stores. I felt pretty safe whilst there but didn't let my guard down.

This is a fun neighborhood with small shops, restaurants and night life. This area gets quite busy and there is quite a bit of traffic.
