A little bit of everything within walking distance. I like going on a nice sunny day, eating out on Bill’s patio, enjoying.

Grand Ave is such a great place for shopping and dining. The larger retailers have blended in pretty well with the boutiques—something for everyone here. Amazing long-established restaurants and the quick fare all available on this stretch of road. Well worth a weekend visit.

Lovely strolling shopping avenue. Boutiques and a couple of great eateries. The Lexington restaurant reopened this year, such a great reinstatement to the avenue. So many great memories. Grand old days, etc... Definitely worthy of a weekend visit.

This is a great neighborhood to spend an afternoon. From Dale Street on the East to Cleveland on the West you will find many interesting non-chains stores. For restaurants you have many cultures to choose from. Go Exploring.

Pretty good selection of shops, theatre and restaurants on this residential street. We found the Grandview movie theatre pretty good, it wasn’t been subdivided.

This is just a great place to be in St. Paul. Good restaurants, cool shops, kitschy places. It kind of has it all.
