What's it like living in Uptown Minneapolis? Any insider secrets like cost of living?
Uptown Minneapolis is a vibrant neighborhood located about a mile south of Downtown Minneapolis. The neighborhood is known for the fashionable area at the intersection of Hennepin Avenue and Lake Street that is highly concentrated with shops, bars and restaurants. These features tend to attract a younger crowd, but Uptown is also great for families with quieter streets just a few blocks away from the commercial district. The large supply of apartments keeps rent reasonable in the area. Buying a house in Uptown is typically more expensive than the average price of a home in the city of Minneapolis.
Located just blocks from Lake Calhoun, the picturesque neighborhood is close to amenities such as the Uptown library, lakes, parks, local schools and the Midtown Greenway bike path. The area hosts community events centered on art and outdoor activities. Make sure visit the historic Uptown Theatre and dine on the roof at one of several restaurants with rooftop seating during the warmer months.
