things to do


Whether you’re looking for a view from the top of the Foshay Tower, posing next to the Mary Tyler Moore Statue, jogging across the Stone Arch Bridge or lounging in The Commons, downtown has a captivating view that awaits you. Take some time to get to know our five neighborhoods and see why Minneapolis is a place so many people come to live, work and play.

dine and socialize

Our Downtown has incredible unique food options ranging from Murray’s Steakhouse to The Loon Café. We have excellent outdoor rooftop options like Brit’s Pub as well as fun patio seating like The Local, McCormick & Schmick’s and The Newsroom. And if you’re looking for craft beer, our brewery scene is thriving including Fulton Beer’s taproom in the North Loop.


Downtown is full of year-round entertainment, activities and programming. Take in Aquatennial in July or Holidazzle during the holiday season. Enjoy a show at Hennepin Theatre Trust, Brave New Workshop or The Guthrie Theater. Head over to Target Center for a Minnesota Timberwolves or Lynx game, Target Field to see the Twins or cheer on the Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium.
