Loring Park: One of Minneapolis' most unique neighborhoods

Loring Park Minneapolis unique

If you’re looking for Minneapolis homes for sale, and you love highly walkable areas full of history and culture, the Loring Park neighborhood might be for you. Located in the southwest corner of downtown Minneapolis, Loring Park is filled with renowned restaurants, classical theaters and breathtaking landscapes.

Great local dining

Loring Park residents love the fine dining offered at The Oceanaire and Café Lurcat, while others head to favorites like Joe’s Garage and Eli’s Food and Cocktails for lowkey meals with friends. After dinner, take in a play at the Red Eye theater, which consistently puts on some of the best community productions around.

Sculptures and attractions

If you’d like to explore the community’s outdoor attractions, head to the picturesque Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, home of the famous “Cherry and the Spoon” sculpture.  Loring Park homeowners can also spend weekend afternoons walking downtown on the Loring Greenway, or setting up a picnic lunch in Loring Park itself.

Basilica Block Party

In the summer, music fans from all over Minnesota head to the  Basilica of St. Mary’s for the Basilica Block Party. The two-day music festival features both local and national acts, and proceeds go to the ongoing restoration efforts of the Basilica – one of Loring Park’s best-known landmarks.

If you value culture, walkability and great local restaurants, Loring Park might be the perfect Minneapolis neighborhood for you. Reach out today to contact an Edina Realty REALTOR® who specializes in the Loring Park area.
