how far is riverfront district from sculpture garden?

by fairlight

Is it possible to walk from Riverfront district in Minneapolis to the Sculpture garden? How long would it take, approximately?

Thank you

Re: how far is riverfront district from sculpture garden?

I think it's walkable if you enjoy walking. The Sculpture Garden is west of the river but a fairly straight walk from west to east. My son lives in Minneapolis, and I love that city. There is so much to see and do!

Re: how far is riverfront district from sculpture garden?

Absolutely you can - it's probably about 1 and 1/4 mile to 1 and 1/2 miles from the Riverfront and not difficult at all. If you're a walker, you'll do it in under 1/2 hour.

Thank you,

Can you recommend what would be a good way to do it to see downtown while walking from Riverfront to the Sculpture garden?

Re: how far is riverfront district from sculpture garden?

by goodfish

Sure can!

Walk down Nicollet Mall (south) to W. Grant St, then head right on W. Grant St. to Loring Park. Walk through Loring Park and across the elevated pedestrian bridge over I-94. You'll come down from the bridge right into the garden.

Googlemap Minneapolis and zoom in downtown to see the streets.

Coming back, you could head north out of the park to make a stop into St. Mary's Basilica (if no weddings or other services going on). It's a beautiful church and well worth the few-minute walk for a short visit. You will clearly see it from both the sculpture garden and the park.

I've written about both places in my Minneapolis pages here on VT so have a look if interested in more info:
Just click on my member name by my photo and my personal pages will come up.
By the map on the right side of the page is the list of places I've written about.
Click on Minneapolis
Click on "Things to do" - St Mary's is the first tip (I think) and the sculpture garden is a little further down the list.

My apologies, Fairlight - I see now that you've been a VT member since 2006 so you know your way around the system! I'm so used to helping first-timers that I forget to look sometimes!!

Thank you Goodfish!

I did look at your Minneapolis page and it was very helpful in planning our stay there, especially the dining part:)

Travel Tips for Minneapolis

Target Headquarters

by Stephen-KarenConn

Karen travels to Minneapolis from Cincinnati several times a year on business. She works for Proctor & Gamble with headquarters in Cincinnati and her job is as a Customer Service and Logistics Coordinator for Target, based in Minneapolis.

P&G is the largest comsumer goods company in the world with dozens of brands including Crest, Duracell, Gillette, Pampers, Pringles, Clairol, Tide, Iams and many many more. Target is the second largest retailer in America - surpassed only by WalMart. What this means is that Karen and her team are responsible for shipping millions of dollars worth of products to Target warehouses around the country every day - Two Billion dollars in business every year. Those numbers boggle my mind, but my beautiful wife is a brilliant and capable person and I am very proud of her. When Karen was scheduled to go to Minneapolis in April, 2007, I decided to meet her there. I drove my trusty 12-year-old pickup truck while Karen flew. After her business was wrapped up we spent the weekend touring Minneapolis and St. Paul, which including seeing the Target Corporate Offices in downtown Minneapolis, and a downtown Target store near the headquarters.

After a wonderful weekend together Karen flew back home and back to work in Cincinnati. Being semi-retired, I had a little more time. So I took five days to get home, taking a zig-zag route which helped me to collect several new counties in my ongoing quest to visit every county in the United States at least once in my lifetime.

Convention Center

by BLSM

The Minneapolis Convention Center is only about 10 years old and has already grown from the the original three domes to four plus two other very large rooms for conventions. this shows two entrances. These domes can be one veryvery large exhibite hall or divided into 4 smaller ones. But even the small one are big enough to play football in with all the bleachers and then some. On the far right entrance is the main skywalk that leads to several hotels and shopping centers. You can walk from many hotels to the convention center and never go outside. It is also connected to several parking ramps.

Loring Park

by yooperprof

Minneapolis people love their parks, and Loring Park, at the edge of downtown, and in the heart of a vibrant cultural district, is one of the best. Biking and walking paths cross the park, and there are numerous recreational opportunities: basketball, tennis, boating in a small pond, and winter ice skating.

Note: Loring Park isn't the safest place to stroll across at night.

It can't be said enough

by mnhaus

If you're here during the summer and plan on spending any time at all outdoors, bring some mosquito repellant with DEET. They make jokes about the mosquito being the state bird, but.....maybe they aren't really joking?

Nicollet Island - Back in Time

by goodfish

Nicollet Island is the only inhabited island on the Mississippi and was named for Joseph Nicollet, who explored and mapped the mighty river in the 1830's. This 48-acre limestone oasis was once a busy industrial center of factories, mills and ice houses. It was also, for a time, a fashionable address and while the early commercial structures are mostly gone, 22 Victorian-era homes have survived. All but two of them date from 1864 to 1898.

The southern end of the island has a park, an event center, and upscale hotel/restaurant that occupy the remains of a former boiler works/door company. DeLasalle Catholic High School takes up most of the middle section, and the residential neighborhood lies on the northern third. There are only a few little streets lined with homes in various states of repair - from beautifully restored to the interesting, bohemian paint job - but it's a fun ramble on a sunny day. When the trees obscure the downtown skyline, you forget you're in the middle of a city! And those really are chickens you hear - one of the residents raises them!

The island is attached - by the Hennepin Ave. bridge - to downtown on the one side, and Northeast Minneapolis on the other so it's easy to combine this with a visit to either place. I'm attaching websites with some nice pictures of the houses (http://nicolletislandmn.org/index.php?history) and a little history (http://fieldguide.fmr.org/site_detail.php?site_id=120). Have also mapped out a favorite riverfront hike that includes the island (see next tip). There is a small parking lot on the west side of the island but it's really more fun to leave your car downtown or on the Northeast side and walk to it via the Hennepin Bridge.
