Minnehaha Parkway/th & Chicago Professional Review and Guide
"Three of the city’s landmarks rich in natural geography combine for this walk: first, a lovely section of the Grand Rounds, Minnehaha Pkwy.; second, a charming business district, 48th St. and Chicago in McRae Park; and finally, a lake, Lake Nokomis. The proximity of nature and small town–like business districts is relatively common in the Twin Cities, but this walk stands out. Minnehaha Pkwy. is one of the seven byway districts in Minneapolis’s Grand Rounds Scenic Byway. Minnehaha Park passes through the neighborhood en route to Minnehaha Falls a few miles away, and just over the hill lies a quaint and quirky shopping district with numerous independently owned businesses. Nothing could be better on a hot summer day than enjoying a delicious organic ice cream at the Pumphouse Creamery after exploring the parkway and Lake Nokomis."
