Bridge
“This historic bridge brings you along the grand Mississippi River. Check out the Gold Medal park nearby and climb the spiraled hill to the best view of the Cities. Then, head to the Mill City Museum making it a perfect day. The museum and bridge paths are an archaeological testament to the grain mills that were the economic engine of the Twin Cities. ”

“Park your car at this park, and then walk over the stone arch bridge for beautiful views of the city and the river. In the summer there is a farmer's market there every Saturday morning. Also by this park is a lovely main street-type area called St. Anthony Main with great restaurants, patios, and a cheap movie theatre. ”
