North Saint Paul is a distinct area (considered more of its own city than a neighborhood) located Northeast of downtown Saint Paul, and has great historical context and charm. The structures are older, including a downtown stretch of storefront with a six block long Main Street. Silver Lake and Casey Lake are the area’s largest bodies of water and both have adjacent parks great for a weekend stroll. Being a historical spot, North Saint Paul boasts the oldest continuously operating bar in Minnesota, Neumann's Bar, highlighted below. Check out other known local spots and hole-in the-wall gems on our compiled list.

Not to be confused with West Side Saint Paul, the city of West Saint Paul actually looks pretty south when viewing it on a map, but hey, it’s a worthy area to cover none-the-less. The city's misleading name comes in part from the fact that it lies on the west bank of the predominantly north-to-south Mississippi River. Robert Street is the main drag in this area with some great spots to check out. And you know, since we’re covering it on our neighborhood series, we’ve compiled a list below. 


Crumbl Cookies

Perhaps one of the most known neighborhoods in Saint Paul (are we too bold to say in the Twin Cities?) Summit Hill is a truly classic neighborhood famous for its regal Summit Avenue, a boulevard boasting the best preserved collection of Victorian mansions in the country, yes, country.

From the opulent Governor's Residence to the prior home of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Summit Hill is a prized jewel. Just one block over, you’ll find miles of great shops and local restaurants lining Grand Avenue. We’ve noted a few worth checking out below.

Bryn Mawr is located directly west of downtown Minneapolis within the Calhoun-Isles community. The neighborhood is surrounded by nature and bound by parkland: Theodore Wirth Park to the north and west, Bassett Creek to the north, Bryn Mawr Meadows to the east, and Cedar Lake Park to the south. Bryn Mawr has a unique character with much to love (and gardens everywhere!). Predominantly residential, this area boasts a variety of home styles along with plenty of recreational activities. Not to mention, it is hard to get a location more convenient to downtown Minneapolis. The Penn Avenue entrance to I-394 gives easy access to the whole metro area.

Welcome to the Standish neighborhood of Minneapolis! While you can agree this area within the Powderhorn community is low-key and under the radar, it’s convenient location and top-rated local joints make it worthy to explore on our Neighborhood Series.

Also in close proximity to Lake Nokomis and Minnehaha Falls, like much of the cities — this neighborhood is in high demand.

Midway, known officially as Hamline-Midway, is nestled about midway (you probably could have guessed it) between downtown Minneapolis and downtown Saint Paul. Perhaps best known for Hamline University being located within its borders, the Green Line located on the south side of the neighborhood makes access between Minneapolis and Saint Paul easier than ever. At University Avenue and Snelling Avenue, you’ll find one of the busiest intersections in all of the Twin Cities. This area is one of the most significant cultural centers of the Twin Cities and it’s hard to find a neighborhood with more global restaurants and grocers. Also home to Saint Paul’s warehouse district, you’ll find a diverse mix of residential and commercial properties. Check out some…
