Downtown / Washington Avenue Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Downtown neighborhood, just off the Mill District, is another area in flux. Less than 20 years ago, it mostly consisted of abandoned warehouse buildings, machine shops, and lots of parking ramps, with the big white bubble of the Metrodome as the key point of interest.

Today, this neighborhood is home to one of the largest literary collectives in the country and a world-renowned theater, as well as upscale restaurants, publishing houses, and architectural
10 firms. A walk down Washington Avenue means a stroll among old railroad beds converted into parking lots, as well as candy factories and meatpacking plants converted into performance spaces for National Endowment for the Arts prize–winning poets and writers."
