More about Minneapolis, Minnesota

The Mississippi River crosses the city from the north to southeast, drops 65 ft at the Falls of Saint Anthony, then follows a deep gorge to its confluence with the Minnesota River. Minnehaha Creek flows east through the city over Minnehaha Falls and into the Mississippi River. The city’s lakes and riverfronts form part of the extensive municipal park system.

The downtown area is located west of the Mississippi River, adjacent to the Falls of Saint Anthony. Part of the district’s principal thoroughfare, Nicollet Avenue, has been converted into a ten-block shopping center, known as Nicollet Mall, reserved for pedestrians and public transportation; at one end is Gateway Center, a complex that includes several high-rise government and office buildings. Pedestrians may also cross from building to building using skyways, glass-enclosed bridges that cross many downtown streets. The Mall of America, the largest retail and entertainment complex in the United States, is located in nearby Bloomington.
