City Beautiful

City Beautiful was a movement to beautify America’s cities, starting in the late 1800s. It was on my mind as I crawled around the Minneapolis riverfront on a cool, sunny afternoon. With all the development happening in central Minneapolis, I’d say the movement is alive and well.

These pictures are from the St. Anthony Main area on the Mississippi. The trail down to the river is the best urban hike in the city. It’s called the Lower Trail and is accessible off of St. Anthony Main just to the east of St. Anthony Falls Labs.
