Walkable St. Paul: Which Neighborhood Gives You Happy Feet?
One of the many things we love about St. Paul condos and lofts is their location in the most walkable of urban neighborhoods. Summer in Downtown St. Paul means comfortable shoes, and immersion in the energy of the markets and the music, and numerous cafes, restaurants, and bars to choose from. The downtown farmers’ market is open on weekends. Shop and eat locally!
Lowertown is an urban explorer’s dream. Ever-evolving, it’s never the same twice.

Convenient public transit makes it easy to explore nearby neighborhoods. If you yearn for the walkable city lifestyle, the Summit-University and Union Park areas combine gentle residential streets with bike shops and bakeries, co-ops and cafes, and plenty of shops on Selby Avenue.
Grand Avenue is airy in the daytime, romantic at night. A block north of Grand is Summit Avenue, which takes you from the Mississippi River into downtown. Authors Garrison Keillor and F. Scott Fitzgerald and have lived on this beautiful avenue.
