We strolled along Nicollett Avenue last week and enjoyed it very much! The Skyway was astounding, and we were able to photograph a few of the pedestrian footbridges. The city wasn't loud like other cities; there was not much traffic. It seemed more like a...More

As others have stated, this has been moved inside the Visitor's Center because of roadwork currently going on. The main downside to this is you have to pay to park (the cheapest spot we found charged $6). But the statue is really well done and...More

The Mary Tyler Moore statue is inside the visitor center is a must see for a Minneapolis trip. The workers inside the visitor center are very helpful and showed our family how to bike to the stone arch bridge.

If you want to see the historic statue of Mary Tyler Moore, get to Nicolett Avenue. She's proudly placed in the visitors center. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The area also has shopping but right now there is quite a bit of construction....More
