  • I enjoy getting food for lunch and sitting at Rice Park. The fountain is pretty and there is usually a bench free to sit on.  more »
  • Benches, fountain and food trucks. Next door to the Landmark Center and on the bus lines. They have activities all year round, and even music on weekdays.  more »
  • Food is expensive in Saint Paul, especially downtown, so I decided to check out the life-size Fitzgerald statue in Rice Park and get lunch from one of the food trucks and carts that rim the park. For ...  more »

  • Nice park in downtown St Paul. Food trucks surround it at lunch, and all kinds of people walk around it. Across from great library, the famous St Paul hotel, and the beautiful Landmark building. Great for pictures. The only down side, sometimes too many homeless around asking for money.
  • If you're looking for a park for kids or dogs to run around in, this is not for you. But it is a nice place to sit and eat lunch when the weather is nice. Food trucks abound during the warmer months. Winter Carnival ice sculpture garden, several Peanuts statues and beautifully hung lights can also be found here.
  • It's nice and small but the statues and architecture make up for that. Recently a great Pokemon Go spot. There are charging stations to plug into attached to some of the trees. Great place to find food trucks in the summer time.
  • It's a nice park in the middle of the city where you can sit and read or have a coffee and relax if the homeless will leave you alone.
  • Beautiful Park located in the middle of St paul. Love walking through here during the winter and looking at the holiday lights. Also a great area for taking pictures.

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.
