020 Minneapolis postcard No More Flyovers F lying over Minnesota? It's worth stopping in at Minneapolis' North Loop, named one of the top 25 travel destinations on Fodor's 2016 "Go List" as a "flourishing foodie haven and hipster paradise." Most shops and cafés are local and one-of-a kind, an eclectic mix that invites exploration and discovery of unusual tastes and treasures. This historic neighborhood, once an industrial center of warehouses and railroads, is now the fastest growing neighborhood in Minneapolis, the place where artists, young professionals and empty nesters congregate. The last Thursday of every month is North Loop's "Date Night." You can board a horse-drawn carriage to your favorite shop or café, experience special events like trunk shows and seminars, and take advantage of discounts offered in participating merchants. Prefer to bike? Buy a $6 pass at one of the 170 Nice Ride MN kiosks and after touring North Loop, pedal off on the Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway and experience 50 miles of paved bike trails connecting the downtown riverfront with the chain of lakes and around the city. - Judy Bell The Foundry Home Goods Exposed brick walls, wooden beams and a woodsy scent provide the backdrop for "beautiful products made by talented, real people from around the world." Find Minnesota-made beeswax candles, ceramics from Portugal and bath towels from Japan-everything is creatively presented to tempt and tease shoppers through the warm space of many scents and textures.

It also features a full-service interior design firm, specializing in residential projects in styles ranging from contemporary transitional to European traditional. Photo by spacecraFting The Bachelor Farmer A historic brick-and-timber warehouse is the home of Bachelor Farmer, an eco-conscious café and event venue. It features the freshest ingredients available from local farmers and (in the summer months) from their own rooftop garden. This one-of-a-kind concept was developed by Eric and Andrew Dayton, who also founded Askov Finlayson, another favorite North Loop retail destination with private-label, high-quality and timeless menswear.
