We love to revisit the Avenue. If you like historic mansions, don't miss! Also a fun place for a jog or run. One of our Xmas traditions is to see everybody's lights.

We had a great time in St. Paul! There are surprisingly many things to do including just strolling the lovely neighborhoods with magnificent homes.

Beautiful area and worth a visit. We enjoyed the drive down Summit, and plan to return to walk the area and tour the John J. Hill house.

This may be the prettiest block in America! Starting at the Cathedral of St Paul, passing the oldest remaining house, F. Scott Fitzgerald's House, all the way to the Governor's Residence. Worth the drive!

I walked it, took photos and walked back. I looked at all the famous places but honestly I enjoyed looking at the other houses and wondering about their history. some amazing houses, dont get me wrong. Just not really my thing.

The street is such a nice drive. I didn’t know about it but saw it on TripAdvisor. I was in the area so a took a ride. The mansions are huge and in good shape. Really a nice ride.

With cooler temperatures we were looking for a nice drive - and this did not disappoint. Beautiful homes with great fall foliage. Glad some locals recommended it to us!

On a nice afternoon in September, we strolled through this neighborhood for an hour. Wow!!! Wide sidewalk, wide parkway separating us from the street, gardens, huge trees, absolutely gorgeous homes in a wide range of traditional architectural styles, sprinkled with history. We parked (free) along the street (there was plenty of parking) and soaked up the relaxing atmosphere, So glad that this fine American neighborhood has been preserved. +.

I loved all of the architecture and the houses and people were so nice. The weather was very nice and the streets were very clean and I was so impressed.

This is the history of (wealthy) MN on one block. It's beautiful so put aside your anti-elitist biases and just enjoy the architecture. It's a nice drive from the river all the way to the Governor's mansion.
