Northeast Minneapolis & the Riverfront
The Northeast Minneapolis Arts District includes a vast number of artist studios, art galleries, and performance spaces embedded in a unique neighborhood in Northeast Minneapolis.
Discover “Nordeast,” a neighborhood rich in culture, history and recreation. You can find some of the best bars and delis in the city, as well as mingle on the Historic Mississippi Riverfront. Immerse yourself in the warehouses and factories of the past, which have been re-purposed as working spaces for over 400 artists who work in a variety of mediums and fill the galleries. In the spring and summer, you’ll find art crawls and craft fairs to buy one-of-a-kind Minneapolis gifts.
Explore its historic landmarks, scenic parks, cultural venues, dining, shopping, lodging, and recreation that make the Minneapolis Riverfront a world-class destination.
With the booming industrial era now over the Minneapolis Riverfront has retained its heritage and been reborn with a new kind of energy, capitalizing on the spectacular beauty of the river and creating a rich mix of experiences for people to enjoy. Minneapolis’ Mill District is the historic "birthplace of Minneapolis" that celebrates and entertains with an eclectic collection of historic buildings, scenic parks, cultural venues, dining, shopping and lodging. Home to the inspiring St. Anthony Falls on the Mississippi River as a dramatic backdrop, as well as the “Most Explosive Museum in America” in the Mill City Museum. Breezy and tree-lined, this park setting in downtown Minneapolis is the perfect place to unwind, explore and entertain.
NORTHEAST RIVER DISTRICT
Across the Stone Arch Bridge, the first railroad bridge to cross the Mississippi River, you'll find Old Main Street. A cobblestone road lined with restaurants and entertainment venues with spectacular views of the Minneapolis skyline and the Mississippi. Today, the Stone Arch Bridge is a bike and walking path.
