makes for a good city walking tour if staying downtown - when the water is high, the falls are raging
A very impressive arts festival. Full of fine art, photography, jewelry, food and music. Fun for the whole family. Bring your walking shoes and cash for junk food! Better than the State Fair!
I love watching the falls of St. Anthony. It is such a great place to visit; it's the largest drop on the Mississippi; the history is detailed and significant because its been at the heart of Minneapolis for about 170 years; the outdoor walking information on the east bank is very informative as well.
The Falls, though diminished in size, is the reason for Minneapolis and the flour industry which made the City grow. It still remains a wonderful spot, winter or summer, when viewed from the Guthrie Theatre's Endless Bridge (free) or from James J. Hill's Stone Arch Bridge. Definitely worth a visit.
The falls are great to look at and are close by to the Guthrie and Mill City ruins. The area brings alot of people to it to walk and look at the falls. It is an easy trip in the city - between downtown and Northeast Minneapolis.
