#43 of 52 Must See Things in Minneapolis.
The “Main Street” of Minneapolis for more than 100 years, Nicollet is finally back in action after just over two years of renovations. Those visiting the area can enjoy over 250 new trees, wider walkways, improved signage, and public art displays that bring Nicollet to life.
Eat, drink and shop all along the newly designed Nicollet. Stop at their new addition, Hopcat which has over 80 different tap beers, great happy hour deals, and a seriously delicious menu. Head across the street to the Meet Minneapolis Visitor Center where you can get your bus pass, recommendations for things to do in the city, and shop for locally made gifts from Minnesota Makers. Take a selfie with the Mary Tyler Moore statue, back in her original spot at 7th & Nicollet. Make your way down the street and find that I-can’t-believe-I-got-this-for-$10 item from Nordstrom Rack or Saks OFF 5th. Stop at Target and find out how many things you didn’t know you needed. Grab a margarita and some spicy tacos from Barrio, or make your way to Dakota Jazz Club, one of Prince’s favorite spots in Minneapolis. Or try out Brit’s Pub for lawn bowling, English pints and bangers and mash.
