had a couple of hours to kill before heading to the airport at the end of our holiday, so came here purely because it appeared on the sat-nav (gps). So glad we did. The bridge is a great place to walk, and obviously very popular with locals out to cycle/walk/jog/run/dog walk/skate and generally enjoy. The view of the falls is... 更多
Great walk along the river to view the Stone Arch Bridge, Mississippi River, Falls and locks! It was a beautiful afternoon walk down a dedicated walking/bike path.
Did the walk across the bridge and it is magnificent. Had a very gorgeous day for this perfect adventure. You can park on either side of the bridge and walk back and forth. It is well worth the stop and walk.
Amazing place, decorated by the city skyline! It's great to see the great Missisipi river from a different angle, everything looks brand new, the access is easy and you can seat in the restaurants near by to have a beer while wondering the falls.
Bridge is spectacular and I plan to return for another visit in the very near future. Next time I plan to photograph close up to the falls.

We found these quite by accident walking along the Mississippi River. The information center is a treasure trove of history and how these Falls and the Lower Lock were crucial to the early flour industry of Minneapolis. Nice relaxing walk and sites.
The falls were important when Minneapolis was the four milling capital of America, now it is just a history lesson of the Mississippi river. The views from Stone Arch Bridge, and the history of that bridge are more exciting. Lovers like to stroll this bridge even late at night... a safe getaway and place to view downtown Minneapolis.
A must see, and a great time to stroll along the river. Great park attached, and a walk across the bridge is a must do.
