Anoka Things to Do

    Beautiful view at the Rum River. 4 more images

    by kaluvzmc Written Apr 7, 2006

    One of my favorite things to do is go down to the Rum River and take pictures of the water, ducks, etc. You could also visit the dam which is right off of Main Street.

    If you like fishing, feeding ducks, sitting and relaxing, you should definately check out the river.

    River Front Walk In The Fall

    by riotgirlpeeps Updated Oct 21, 2004

    Near the intersection of Main Street & Ferry Street there is a riverfront walkway. I still haven't gone the full length of this pathway but it closely follows the Rum River through Anoka and up north to a State Park.

    Often times bikers ride on this path, but the view of the river is amazing and there are several overlooks along the way. In downtown Anoka it goes alongside the dam that was originally built in the 1850's.

    Across the river and hopefully someday soon there is an outdoor ampitheater that used to host plays during the summer. There is a pedestrian bridge that goes over the river and there is a pedestrian underpass in case you don't want to cross main street at the street level.

    Formerly the Brickhouse Deli was at this location, it has since moved. There is another deli business with a similar menu and style in the same location with decent food. It is located in the Cornerstone Court Yard and is in the area that was the former post office.

    They claim to be upscale dining, but I think it's better to grab the food and eat by the river.

    Favorite Dish: Build your own sandwhich. That should explain itself.

    Billies is a cool little Bar & Grill that is known for having good buffalo wings.

    The building has been left the way it must have been in the late 1800's and the food is always reasonable in price and very filling.

    One of the most popular things to order there is the billie burger.

    While you wait baskets of popcorn are brought to you.

    Favorite Dish: The cajun chicken salad is really good, but the whole menu is very good and it offers a good selection.

    At the Amish Corner they have all kinds of stuff. I love this store. They have lots of nic naks, Amish made furniture, porcelain dolls, etc. The prices here are very good for everything.

    What to buy: You could shop for anything you like. Visit all the shops on Main Street.

    What to pay: It really depends on how much you are willing to spend. You could spend 5 dollars or 500, it's up to you, but they have stuff in all price ranges.

    Favorite thing: Although other towns are more well known for having antiques in Minnesota Anoka does have a large selection of Antique Stores.

    They all can be found for the most part clustered around the riverfront area in the downtown off of main street.
