Why It’s Cool: As America’s longest continuous urban public parkway, this circular 50-mile asphalt path includes nine miles along the Mississippi River. The 1.2-mile section in the Downtown Riverfront Byway District links to other pedestrian-and-bike trails—which take you to the St. Anthony Main area, where the Main Street cobblestones are as old as the city itself.

Don’t Miss: The goofy Segway Magical History Tour. After tutorials, guides lead tour-goers over Stone Arch Bridge, along the Scenic Byway, and across Boom and Nicollet islands, while dispensing history and local lore.
