The Whittier neighborhood is one of the oldest in the city of Minneapolis. In the 1800's the area was the choice of the wealthy who built their homes here because the land was at a higher elevation than surrounding terrain and was close to the downtown business district. Many of these homes still stand strong, giving our portion of Whittier the title "Historic Mansion District".
Today you will find everything is nearby - Convention Center, three beautiful parks, theaters, museums, dining, groceries, coffee shops, laundry, pharmacy, and shopping - all within walking distance.
Public Bus (MTC) & Light Rail Transit (LRT)
Nicollet Avenue is a major public bus artery with frequent service and quick connections to all other bus routes and the LRT lines.
Trains on the Hiawatha Line travel from downtown Minneapolis to the Airport & Mall of America in Bloomington, MN. The Central Corridor Line travels from Minneapolis through the University of MN campus to St. Paul. The North Star Line travels from Target Field (home of the Minnesota Twins baseball team) on the western edge of downtown Minneapolis to Big Lake, MN.
Taxi - Lyft* - Uber*
Minneapolis has a variety of taxi cab services and a few new "ride share" companies are making it easier (and cheaper) to get around Downtown and the Twin Cities.
Hourly Bike & Car Rentals
24/7 rentals of bicycles or autos through Nice Ride MN* & Car2Go*. There are two bike stations and normally about 10 cars parked nearby, ready for members anytime!
Extra Travel Fun!
During fair weather Pedicabs and Horse Carriages are available throughout downtown. The Pedal Pub* is such a hilarious mode of transport that you'll want to try "drinking & pedaling" at least once!
