You can't miss the marquee for the Uptown Theater, a newly renovated, nearly 100-year-old icon at the heart of Uptown. Uptown stays up late with rooftop restaurants and night clubs, but gets up early to host lakeside races and events. Calhoun Square and Hennepin Avenue host boutiques, outdoorsy shops, hot restaurants, and tattoo parlors. The biggest local draws are Uptown Art Fair and Lake Calhoun, now offering outdoor seafood dining at Tin Fish restaurant.

Getting Around Minneapolis
The best way to get around Minneapolis is by walking. Walking is a unique experience in the city's skyways (enclosed walkways that connect 50 square blocks). Taxis are readily available and affordable. Visit http://www.taxifarefinder.com/main.php?city=Minneapolis for more information on taxis. Public transit (busses and trains) is an economical way to get around the city. The only difference between buses and trains is the service area. Peak fare is $2.25 and off-peak is $1.75. Peak times are 6 to 9 a.m. and 2 to 6:30 p.m. Day passes are available for $6 and are valid for buses and trains. Schedules and routes can be found at http://www.metrotransit.org/ . Bicycle sharing is available through Nice Ride Minnesota (https://www.niceridemn.org/): 24 hour passes start at $6 and the first 30 minutes are free.
