This is a great place to walk around and explore. It is a five minute walk from the heart of downtown Minneapolis. There is parking dr $1 right by the bridge.

This is a must see area, the bridge, a former Rail Road bridge brought back to life,
and is a great walk way, what a way to cross the Mississippi and look at lot of history in this area.
Walk over to nearby River Place, nice restaurants, you can rent Segways and do Segway tours.
Take a walking tour of part of the old power diversion dam.

Scene of loads of events and also just a nice place to hang out for great views of the city and the river.

First, I am a local. Second, I live in the suburbs. Going downtown and walking across the Stone Arch bridge is a favorite summer afternoon activity of mine. My husband and I will spend a couple of hours wandering across the bridge and back and then linger at one of the outside patio bars by St Anthony Main. The bridge provides beautiful views of the river and the skyline and the sound of the water is very soothing. Its a wonderful natural getaway in the middle of the city and worth driving in for.

This is an old railroad bridge built by James J Hill that was converted to a pedestian/biking bridge across the Mississippi. It is a close walk from the Guthrie theater and Mill City museum. My wife and I walked across it after going to the Guthrie and ate at Pracna on Main across the river, which has outdoor seating overlooking the river. The bridge has beautiful views of downtown and the St. Anthony falls lock and dam. This is a nice walk with kids or as a couple.
