Don't miss these 10 things to do near the Stone Arch Bridge Festival!
Here are some fun ideas to make the most out of your time at this year's Stone Arch Bridge Fest.
1. Get a close up of the river with Paddle Share
After taking in the views of the river at the Stone Arch Bridge Festival, hop in a kayak and take a closer look. Paddle Share offers kayak rentals with designated pick up and drop off points to make your trip easy and accessible. Where else can you take in views of the downtown skyline and have the water at your fingertips?
2. Become a Minneapolis expert at the Mill City Museum
Right next door to the river is the Mill City Museum. Learn about the explosion that made Minneapolis what it is today. This old flour mill provides loads of history, and it’s not the boring stuff you’d read from a textbook. View baking demonstrations, sample fresh bread, observe a model mill explosion, experience the Flour Tower and be sure to watch “Minneapolis in 19 Minutes Flat!” You’ll become a Minneapolis history buff without even knowing it.
3. Grab drinks with a view on the St. Anthony Main patios
Just across the bridge, you’ll find St. Anthony Main, an area of Minneapolis along the river that serves as an oasis for patio cocktails and lunchtime sun seekers. Walk along the cobblestone road to an unbeatable view of the skyline along the river. Stop at Aster Cafe for a cheese board and a drink on the patio, head to Pivo Riverplace for authentic Central European lagers and pilsners, or try Jefe: Urban Cocina for Mexican-inspired fare.
