Loved walking around this shopping mall

So many shops and eateries down here that you can spend all day and all night in this part of town. And yes it's connected via the downtown Skyway and Metro stops.

Nicollet Mall has always been the center of downtown, but since areas of the downtown area are being refurbished for the 2018 Super Bowl, it is quite the mess on the mall, even after two years into the project. However, we were able to enjoy lunch at our favorite Panera Bread restaurant at no peril from construction. The city folk... More

Go if you want to eat or shop. In down town and close to the train and bus system. Public restrooms if exploring downtown.

My advise is to NOT Try to drive but park the car. and take a lite rail Blue or Green. And too even the walking within the "mall" (It is really just a street closed off to cars basically. And these days even buses cannot access it. ) > can be trick. I say utilize the skyways for a more... More

This avenue has been the center of shopping and dining for the city for decades (and the home of the classic Mary Tyler Moore "hat in the air" statue), BUT it was totally torn up and under construction this past July, which ruined it a bit. Hopefully it will be back in pristine condition by 2017.

Nicollet Mall has a wide selection of restaurants and bars. In the summer many places have great outdoor seating areas to enjoy the beautiful weather. Great people watching and convenient public transportation.

The Nicollet Mall, once the centerpiece of Minneapolis' downtown area, is currently a big construction mess. Will it be awesome when completed? I hope so. The Minneapolis downtown area has always been world-class. I guess time will tell - I am very curious to see it when it is finished. There are lots of restaurants located on and near the... More

This is a busy and fun walk to do and people watch. There was some times that we would jus see crazy things but thats what happens in a big city. the transportation is free and you can walk down and look for shops or restaurants.

Lots of stores and places to have breakfast and lunch. Most important a pharmacy when needed. Was feeling lousy after flight and was fortunate to have a pharmacy within walking distance of hotel to get some alka seltzer and vitamin c.
