The Mississippi’s largest island hardly seems like one, being a stone’s throw from the cobblestoned Riverplace entertainment district. Offers fantastic views of downtown Minneapolis and the river. Features the romantic 1893 Nicollet Island Inn and Nicollet Island Park on the south end, which frequently hosts concerts and festivals. Take turnoffs from the Hennepin Avenue Bridge or walk over on the old Merriam Street Bridge from Riverplace, Minneapolis.
