This picturesque St. Paul neighborhood strikes a good balance between old and new.
It feels like stepping into a photograph: single family homes dating from the 1920s and ’30s line the streets along Highland Park, and around the corner, the 1940s Highland Theater shows modern releases. Situated between Minneapolis and St. Paul, Highland Park has managed to become historic and contemporary simultaneously. Other housing is available in mini-Tudors or condos. Mississippi River Boulevard offers beautiful trails to run along. Highland Fest takes place every summer, with three days full of live music, food and amusement rides. The sense of community is evident in local restaurant favorites like Casper’s and Runyon’s Nook and Joan’s in the Park.
