One of the best and nicest bridges I have walked across in Minneapolis. Perfect on a sunny day or for an evening walk.

The stone arch bridge is a must see. It doesn't cost anything and offers one of the best views of the city. My recommendation would be to park near the mill city museum then go to the mill city farmers market (date, season, and hours pending). Then take a stroll across the bridge. Take some pictures and imagine boats going... More

The Stone Arch Bridge is a pretty bridge and a good place to take photos. It is also a great place to go for a walk because of the walking path and the park that are nearby.

It was nice to see the bridge and river, but that is it. I went in August so everything was green. Would like to see in the snow.

We enjoy free stuff and beautiful views. After we caught on to this place, we try to stop if we have time to kill in Minneapolis. Always beautiful and interesting to see how our pioneers engineered these structures/systems.

I'm not sure but I think this would be the only walking bridge over the Mississippi River. Very pretty bridge and very nice walk over the bridge connecting two parks. Perfect view of St Anthony's falls and the city.

This was my first trip to Minneapolis as a destination. After crossing the river a couple times by car, I had to walk the beautiful Stone Arch Bridge. I started my walk from the Nicollet Mall, crossed the bridge and walked along the other side past the old mill district. The entire walk was about 4 miles round-trip. The history,... More
