Beautiful historic neighborhood. Over 270 grand mansions still stand on this street! Start at Dale St and Summit Ave, then walk towards downtown St. Paul to the Cathedral.

Imagine what the Victorian age was like in Minnesota by traveling down St. Paul's historic Summit Avenue. Many gorgeous turn-of-the-century homes are well-kept up alongside their carriage houses to give you a glimpse into the glories of the past.

Street with historic 19th century mansions, worth driving by on the way to events in Saint Paul. At Christmas, they put on a nice lighting display. Also popular with trick or treaters on Halloween.

Called, "The Avenue of Churches" You can sign up for walking tour or just walk four blocks from Arabella and enjoy it on your own.

“Named one of the prettiest neighborhoods in America by Forbes, Grand Avenue stretches more than 30 tree-lined blocks from the Mississippi River to downtown St. Paul and is dotted with good eats, cozy coffee houses, and unique boutiques and shops. Author, humorist and radio personality Garrison Keillor was so enamored with the area that he opened up his own place there, Common Good Books, just a short distance from his home. Find books for children at Red Balloon Bookshop, or wildly imaginative toys, games and puzzles for them at Creative Kidstuff. Adults will enjoy culinary products from Cooks of Crocus Hill, bath and body products and fragrances from Garden of Eden, or the art-filled The Grand Hand Gallery, which sells functional pieces including hand blown glass, jewelry, wearable fiber art and paintings. For something to wear not display, women can look to Evereve, which sells contemporary apparel made by and for women, or Bombshell, a boutique for plus-size shoppers. And if you need something more comfortable to wear while strolling the avenue, pop into lululemon athletica, The North Face or Patagonia for active and outdoor wear.”

Restaurant
“Formally the Commodore hotel, with a speakeasy bar and now a meeting room and dining areas. Eat in the bar or at a formal table. If you close your eyes and listen closely you can imagine jazz music and the dancing that occured there for years as a favorite destination for local residents and out of town guests. ”
