Just outside of downtown Minneapolis is a quiet and historical park. Just take a quick walk over the Stone Arch Bridge – and there you are. Getting there is half the fun. Be sure to see what’s going with the dam. Take a look at the new 35W bridge. Check out the endless bridge at the Guthrie Theater.
Once you get across the bridge you’ll see plenty of picnic tables. Walk a little ways and you’ll also see several restaurants – most with outside seating. Tugg’s has some of the best lemonade in Minneapolis. If you have the time and the energy you could even walk all the way to Surdyk’s to get cheese, bread and wine!
After you’ve eaten you can take a walk down by the river – there are great trails.
