What Renters Like and Dislike About Saint Paul

It's near a stadium. There are restaurants within 4 blocks and I like the local library, which is next to a small park.

We have a nice lake and a regional park that has a zoo within walking distance. Wealso have the state fair grounds with lots of activities 2 miles from our house. we have a shopping center 5 blocks from our house that has many good resturants in it and a grocery store.

We have a neighborhood bar that was featured in grumpy old men. There is a German emmersion school that keeps on expanding.

Close to everything a person needs. Light rail is nearby. Close to bus routes if needed. Interstate is close by.

I live in a gorgeous old brick buidling that has two stories and two parks for my child very close. It's about a 25 minute walk to a bunch to shops and restaurants on Selby.

It is very old and established. Though not within walking distance it's close to downtown. Close to the river walk.

Living in Saint Paul, MN

EVERYTHING TO KNOW ABOUT RENTING AN APARTMENT IN SAINT PAUL, MN

The older of the Twin Cities, Saint Paul is also the quieter sibling. Where Minneapolis beats with the pulse of a modern, urban city, Saint Paul feels calmer, with well-established neighborhoods that are more hippy than hipster. Head west across the Mississippi River to enjoy vibrant nightlife in the middle of Minneapolis's modern skyscrapers, but stay in St. Paul for a historic feel, a location near the state capitol and a diverse array of ethnic neighborhoods and apartments for rent.

NEIGHBORHOODS AND APARTMENTS FOR RENT IN SAINT PAUL

The Saint Paul area is home to a huge range of apartment styles, from low-rise homes near Battle Creek Park to modern communities with pools and heated underground parking in Highland Park. Filled with apartments in stately brick buildings, St. Paul's historic downtown is experiencing a renaissance that's bringing new art galleries, restaurants and bars within walking distance of the Xcel Energy Center and the St. Paul Farmers Market.

PET-FRIENDLY SAINT PAUL

With four off-leash dog parks in Saint Paul alone, Twin Cities pet owners have lots of options for a fun day with a four-legged buddy. Meeker Island Dog Park wins best in show for its secluded dog beach on the Mississippi River, though some judge that Maplewood's Battle Creek Dog Park deserves the top prize for its wooded trails and swimming pond.

FREE THINGS TO DO IN SAINT PAUL

For free entertainment in Saint Paul, take your pick of a never-ending stream of festivals, stroll past beautiful Victorian architecture on Summit Avenue, tour a local brewery, or catch a spectacular view from the historic Cathedral of Saint Paul. Also free, Como Park Zoo & Conservatory wins rave reviews with locals and visitors alike.

SAINT PAUL'S BEST ACTIVITIES FOR FAMILIES WITH KIDS

After finding your apartment for rent in Saint Paul, you'll want to find something fun to do with the family. The Twin Cities metro area makes entertaining kids easy with interactive museums like The Works, historic attractions like Fort Snelling, and beautiful parks that host summertime concerts and movie screenings.
Check out our top picks for the best family-friendly activities in the Saint Paul area:

  • Minnesota Children's Museum: At this museum dedicated to creative play, kids can climb a four-story tower, pretend to be firefighters in a miniature Saint Paul or work their way through a laser maze.
  • Mall of America: America's largest mall is much more than a collection of stores. Spend some time hurtling down indoor roller coasters, tour the aquarium, or pack a swimsuit to enjoy the Great Wolf Lodge water park.
  • Science Museum of Minnesota: Discover the wonders of dinosaurs, the human body and the Mississippi River at this museum that aims to inspire scientific learning.
  • Hidden Falls Regional Park: Escape to the forest without leaving Saint Paul at this beautiful park. Hike nearly seven miles of wooded trails along the Mississippi, fish for walleye, or plan a picnic using the park's BBQ grills.
  • Local Festivals: Saint Paul loves to celebrate its diversity, and festivals take place all year long. Start the year with the parades of the St. Paul Winter Carnival, and continue the celebrations with Irish Day and the Festival of Nations.

SAINT PAUL'S BEST SCHOOLS
