Minneapolis neighborhoods do not get more charming than this one. Nestled between Lake Calhoun’s southern and Lake Harriet’s western shores.
Pitcuresque cottage-style homes, local shops and ample green space nestled between the southern shores of Lake Calhoun and the western shore of Lake Harriet make Linden Hills as charming as neighborhoods come. Sandwiched between these heavenly bodies of water, there’s no shortage of whimsical boutiques and lovable restaurants intertwined with the miles of paved pathways.
The “Village” area near the intersection of 43rd Street and Upton Avenue is the hub of shopping and delicious eats. The Wild Rumpus bookstore is a favorite for children to peruse books, and adults can find fun gifts at Bibelot. For a bite, Tilia’s award-winning chefs cook up brunch, lunch and dinner. And be sure to grab an ice cream cone at Sebastian Joe’s. Open since 1976, the Linden Hills Co-op offers fresh and delicious food options. The Linden Hills Farmers’ Market takes place every Sunday from mid-May through late October and features local products and produce. Also in the summer, the Lake Harriet Bandshell hosts bands and music events.
The best part about living in Linden Hills is that even in the middle of winter it is beautiful. After all, the neighborhood was used as a filming location for the Christmas film “Jingle All the Way.”
Linden Hills is named for its hilly, Linden tree-lined streets featuring charming craftsman homes.
