Southwest


Southwest is a residential area rich in neighborhood feel and neighborhood consciousness. People here walk and bike to comfortable coffee shops and bars and discuss city, state, and national politics with passion, and they have plenty of Minneapolis' signature urban outdoor amenities to enjoy: Lakes Harriet and Calhoun, Minnehaha Creek with its walking and hiking trails, and a plenitude of parks. Within Southwest, Linden Hills is a tidy, compact community with its own pocket-size business district rich in cafes, small restaurants, and other stylish urban amenities.
