Riverfront/Mill District

The only falls on the entire Mississippi, Saint Anthony Falls quite literally made Minneapolis, powering sawmills and then the flour mills that gave the city its economic identity. Today a major museum, built within the stabilized ruin of one of the mills, celebrates the flour-making era, and the Guthrie Theater sits nearby, in a stylish dark-blue industrial-style building by French mega-architect Jean Nouvel.
