Nicollet Island - East Bank Reviews

1 review
Nicollet island is historical gem hidden in plain sight on the Mississippi River crowned by the Grain Belt Brewery sign that's been there lighting up the Hennepin Avenue bridge for many many years. Surrounded by parks and water with Downtown Minneapolis is just across the bridge. If you like a quiet place to enjoy a walk hit the trails on the island and enjoy some nature. We've seen everything from deer to eagles and heck there's even several fox dens on this floating rock. The people of the island are mostly old school artsy types It's sort of the odd ball of the bunch. There is everything from an old movie theater on St. Anthony Main which leads to the stone arch bridge that's been converted to a pedestrian walkway and bike path with St. Anthony falls flowing below it. Somewhere between tomorrow and yesterday on the only populated island along the upper Mississippi River. I love calling this unique place my home.
