  • Cute place, lots of Christmas lights decorating the trees. Mears park is near by to Rice Park, and definitely worth a check out too! I saw lots of squirrels at Mears Park, chasing each other around and whatnot. I like squirrels.
  • A quaint park in the heart of historic downtown St Paul near shopping, food, hotels and events. Park is in front of the St Paul Hotel, next to the Excel Center, the Landmark, St Paul Library . . . during the week in the Spring, Summer and Fall a variety of food trucks are available. In Summer the park has Music in the Park. Great location for photo shoots!
  • It's beautiful. Alot of homeless but they don't seem to bother people everytime I've been through there
  • Great place to snap some Holiday pics with the Christmas tree lit up and fresh snow on the ground.
  • One of the best places to go to for Pokemon Go. On a busy day, you may meet quite a few other trainers! Great community all around.

Where to stay in Saint Paul

Places to stay in St. Paul sit concentrated in the downtown area. The Lowertown Historic District, which includes some of the city's oldest buildings, makes a particularly attractive option. Hotels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts here can put you just steps from the Mississippi River, while the greater downtown area also offers apartment rentals and hostels. Staying downtown also puts you within walking distance of most of the city's prime attractions. Additionally, you'll find a handful of national-chain hotels on the east side of town near Interstate 494 / 694.
