Audio-Guided Walking Tour Kick-Off!

That's right - we are kicking off the Audio Guided Walking Tour project this month! This has been a long process which, we're happy to say, has involved a ton of people from all ages, cultures, and walks of life. People who work in, live in, or have memories of NE neighborhoods. If you haven't been directly involved in this project, you probably know someone who has.
The three Audio Tours will guide you through three distinctively different NE Minneapolis neighborhoods as you listen through headphones and stroll on a tour that blends lore and history, stories and song, humor and fact. We will be launching the Bottineau Neighborhood tour on Saturday, August 29th followed by the Trolley Tour which takes you down 13th Ave. and through the colorful and growing Logan Neighborhood and also the Noon Whistle Tour which will explore some little known eccentricities of the industrial areas by Broadway and Central, Beltrami Park and an area that boasts some great culinary lunchtime delights.

We hope you will join us at the Launch Party on August 29th from 10am-12n at Bottineau Park - listen to live music, brunch buffet, take a sample of the Bottineau Walking Tour, and be part of this most excellent NE community.
