I was on Nicollet Island yesterday afternoon. The Minneapolis Queen paddle wheeler came into view while I was on one of the bridges. Climb aboard for a fun summer activity. Paradise Charter Cruises offers public and private cruises on the Mississippi River through historic downtown Minneapolis.

A Mix of Ruins and Modern Architecture

Yesterday I spent the morning with my photographer friend Valerie. We walked along the riverfront of downtown Minneapolis and across the Stone Arch Bridge. It was an overcast morning–not the best for taking photographs. But that’s what nature dished up for us. Here then, some of the photos from the morning walk.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This is a wonderful part of the city to explore. There’s plenty to see and do. Take a Segway tour. Visit the Mill City Museum and the Guthrie Theater. See St. Anthony Falls from the Water Power Park on the other side of the river. Explore Father Hennepin Park and Island. Stroll along Main Street. Have fun!
