I went to the Grand Old Days on Grand Avenue in June. Lots to do for people of all ages. They had rides for the kids and food for everyone. Many vendors with sales going and an opportunity to really see their wares. Grand Avenue is a great place to just drive up and down to see what's happening. They... More

This review focuses on the east end of Grand but there is much much more as you go West too! Grand Ave is a great area for hanging out for a day, walking your dog, shopping, and most of all, eating. Great restaurants include Everest on Grand (Napali/Indian), Barbary Fig, Café Latté, Bread and Chocolate, Braza, Dixies, La Cucaracha, Tavern... More

Stroll up and down the avenue and poke around in the myriad of interesting shops. Don't miss The Three Sisters Gallery and gift shop for just the right gift just east of Victoria and Grand on the south side of the street in an old apartment building. Have lunch ant any one of the fabulous restaurants in the area. Then... More

Grand Ave is filled with little shops and restaurants. A few block over is Selby Ave and Summit. The whole area is impressive and a way to relax and get your steps in for the day. After a day's of walking and shopping there is one of the best bakeries in town to reenergize yourself. At night go to one... More

Over rated and expense ..... stores are all trendy and expense no place to park..... Lots of bars and restaurants I would not say this is a place to go if you have small children lots of walking and can be a problem with strollers or wheelchairs

What a surprise to stumble upon this quaint area of St. Paul. We had no idea it existed! If you're into architecture, there are plenty of blocks with turn-of-the-century homes and if you get hungry or want to shop locally, there are lots of shops and restaurants along the way!
