The street has been torn up for what seems like years now. There used to be a nice little farmers market and lots of stores but everything is moving out because of Minneapolis's crazy ideas. The street is essentially shut down with nothing to do,...More

The Nicollet Mall, a main mostly pedestrian area in downtown Minneapolis, is being updated and redesigned. For 2016 it is not worth seeing as it is under construction. I am not sure when it will be finished. You can still shop the stores and restaurants,...More

Nicollet Avenue has everything you could want - restaurants, pubs... even Target! It's a must for any Minneapolis visitor. Even if you don't intend to, you'll probably end up there anyway.
