“Come and see a show! The Christmas Carol is a favorite, but there are plays all year long. There are restaurants inside the theater and plenty to see and do in the neighborhood before and after a show. I recommend touring the theater and checking out the "endless bridge" inside.”
“Walking distance along Minnehaha Creek, beautiful scenic views, restaurant and bike rental in summertime. ”
“Walk .7 miles to get to Bde Maka Ska. The Red House Uptown is on 31st Street. Just start walking west. Once you get down there you can head south a few feet towards the 32nd street beach, there is also a playground there and swings facing the lake. On your way home, walk east on Lake Street, and stop at one of the many food joints for a bite.”
