“Nice walk around good looking houses”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

If you are in St Paul, this is a pleasant walk; details can be downloaded from the web. It takes 40 minutes to cover the streets. Any houses to visit in this area have some funny opening times ( shut on Mondays), so best to check first.

“Take the tour!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We took the guided walking tour and it was well worth the $12 admission. Great docent! Learned so much more than just driving the Avenue.

“Great Architecture”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

The wide sidewalks and bike lanes makes this street perfect for a walk, stroll, bike or pedal pub. One of my favorite places to take in the stunning mansions of St. Paul. These are old, architectural masterpieces. Each one unique and filled with wonderful details. The location is also close to now trendy Selby and the local shops on Grand Avenue, which are great for local shopping and dinning.

“House beautiful!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Started our drive from the cathedral and it was spectacular. The beautiful victorian mansions are a must see and a testament to the value of preservation! I know I missed many because you can only drive so slow, but enjoyed it very much. A definite St. Paul treasure!.
