Enjoy Your Day in St.Paul, Minnesota
The settlers of St. Paul once called the city "Pig's Eye" after Pierre "Pig's Eye" Parrant established his popular tavern here. Then the first Catholic of the region, Lucien Galtier, established the Log Chapel of Saint Paul and gave the city a new name.
You can go further into the past and visit the six prehistoric burial mounds in Indian Mounds Park. These mounds suggest the Hopewell Native Americans inhabited the land nearly 2,000 years ago. The park offers two picnic shelters, barbecue grills, paved trails, a ball field, and tennis courts.
Another popular park? Como Lake. The pavilion sitting on the west side of the lake holds theatrical performances and concerts all summer. At the park you'll find a pool featuring a zip line, lazy river, aquatic climbing wall, kiddie pool, six-lane lap pool, and diving platforms.
Immerse yourself in more of St. Paul's past on the Summit Avenue Walking Tour. Summit Avenue was the place of choice for people to build their grand homes during the Victorian-era. These people often made fortunes in the railroad, dry goods, and lumber merchant industries.
Explore the Science Museum of Minnesota.
