Diversity matters, so I like districts that offer lots of choices. Based on a drive-thru, Uptown looks like it'd be a nice area for restaurant and bar exploration.

Nice area to check out. Much more relaxed local area than downtown. Tons of bars and restaurants. About a 15 min. car ride there.

The Lake St. area stretching 3/4 mile in each direction from this intersection has cuisine and architecture of all sorts, and a vibrant but not deafening ambiance. Generations of re-purposing of buildings has not spoiled charm I recall from 50 years ago.

I like this area of Minneapolis. I usually make a stop at CB2 and the Kitchen Store and then walk along and stop in the shops that are around that area. Calhoun Square. Lots of eateries to choose from.

Was here last week! went to People's Organic for a quick lunch (great healthy food) and the shops are lovely. Another Prince influenced location!! Highly recommend Calhoun Square!

One of my favorite places to go shopping, or have a drink, or just walk around and window shop. Uptown has a very eclectic and vibrant vibe to it that is very appealing.

Uptown has many restaurants, bars and shops as well as banks and grocery stores. I felt pretty safe whilst there but didn't let my guard down.

This is a fun neighborhood with small shops, restaurants and night life. This area gets quite busy and there is quite a bit of traffic.

First Avenue - about 2.3 miles. Paisley Park - About 18 miles. You didn't ask but Uptown is less than 3 miles WNW from where Prince grew up.
