About South Side
The South Side region does not have clearly defined boundaries but does include some of the oldest neighborhoods in Minneapolis. Four historic districts, Washburn-Fair Oaks, Healy Block, Milwaukee Avenue, and Minnehaha, are landmark preservation regions in the South Side. Some of the buildings in these districts date to the 1880's. The South Side of Minneapolis is also home to a number of parks surrounding lakes or nestled along the Mississippi River. The largest of these are Powderhorn, Minnehaha, Mississippi Gorge, and Nokomis Hiawatha Parks. Three smaller parks encircle Diamond Lake in the southwestern corner of the South Side. Nokomis Hiawatha Park is also the site of the Hiawatha Golf Course, an 18-hole course opened in 1934. This course has been host to state and national golf events and tournaments. Dining places in the South Side of Minneapolis are abundant and diverse. East Lake Street has a number of ethnic and American restaurants with Indian, Asian, and Mexican cuisine. East Franklin Avenue has Thai, Middle Eastern, American, and Indian dining establishments. Elsewhere in the South Side are Italian and Caribbean restaurants. East Lake Street is the place to go for shopping with an international flair at the Midtown Global Market or at one of the Somali, Mexican, or Scandinavian shops. On Franklin Avenue, a few galleries and shops beckon the tourist with art work, boutique fashions, and Native American goods. Annual events include a May Day parade and festival sponsored by the Heart of the Beast Theatre and the Powderhorn Festival of Arts held in August. Within driving distance of the westernmost reaches of the University of Minnesota campus and located north of the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, the South Side of Minneapolis is worthwhile to explore.
