Uptown Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Uptown is the Twin Cities’ place for fun—especially during summertime. It’s not officially recognized as a neighborhood by the City of Minneapolis, and it’s actually composed of sections of the Calhoun, East Calhoun, East Isles, and Lowry East neighborhoods.

It became a de facto second downtown after Calhoun Square opened in 1983, combining extant buildings and new constructions to create an urban shopping center. With its almost endless array of entertainment options—including bars, coffee shops, restaurants, music clubs, comedy clubs, movie theaters, art galleries, shopping, and tattoo parlors—the area attracts hip, young crowds. The proximity to Lake Calhoun and Lake of the Isles only heightens the cachet of the area during warm weather, when, after a day at the beach, locals enjoy the neighborhood amenities. Put all these together and it makes for a fun and often playfully raucous neighborhood—and a great place for a walk."
