ST.PAUL Tips (20)

Extending nearly 5 miles,...

Extending nearly 5 miles, Summit Avenue is the longest remaining stretch of residential Victorian architecture in the United States.
Notable stately homes on Summit Avenue include the 1891 mansion of James J. Hill, founder of the Great Northern Railroad, Garrison Keillor’s house and Jesse Ventura’s governor’s mansion complete with the state of Minnesota carved in granite on the lawn.

Como Park Conservatory

Excellent indoor conservatory that has 5 different gardens, including everything from bonsai, ferns, flowers, and tropicals. It's a great place to go anytime of the year (it's especially welcoming in winter), and admission is only $1.

The more subtle half of the Twin Cities

Whatever your reason for going to Minneapolis, do not miss spending at least a day, perhaps several in St Paul. It is smaller but it is also the seat of Minnesota government and it has a lot more history.

Visit the Sculpture Garden, drive down Summit Avenue, see a St. Paul Saints minor league baseball game in the summer (if you can get tickets!), visit the Mall of America if you must, walk around Uptown and Lake Calhoun.

See Both Twin Cities

Saint Paul is a nice town to wander around in. If you're in the Twin Cities, might as well see them both.

When in Saint-Paul, one should see Summit Avenue. Summit has many early 20th century houses and is a lovely street to walk in.
