General Area in Minneapolis>Question Details

Adam, Other/Just Looking in San Francisco, CA

What neighborhood caters to younger adults that's NOT near a college?

Asked by Adam, San Francisco, CA Mon Aug 13, 2007

I want to find a Minneapolis neighborhood with a "younger feel" but isn't filled with partying college kids.

Help the community by answering this question:


Northeast Minneapolis and the Northeast Arts District are great for first time home buyers who want an established neighborhood and historic charm.

There are several neighborhoods you should check out--"Tangletown", parts of Uptown (though there are lots of "post-college" partying types to be found there), and the 48th and Chicago area would be good places to start.

There is some good information on the City's website:

Neighborhood descriptions, census data, etc.:

Good luck!

I strongly recommend the Northeast Minneapolis area, Specifically the Saint Anthony West neighborhood. (see the weblink included). Walking distance to downtown and Hennipen/Central (with restaurants like Brasa, Bulldog, the Times, Alma, Surdyx wine and cheese, Lunds and of course the St Anthony Main river walk ). Lots of owner occupied duplexes so unique rentals are available.

Uptown. In fact, check on 2321 Emerson #107, it is a great location. Close to lakes, coffee shops, restaurants and galleries + nite life.
Also now offered for rent @ $1200 mo.

Adam, based on a relocation from San Fran, I agree on Uptown and the surrounding south west Minneapolis area. Great "young" feel, lots of up and coming professionals, quant shops and places to eat, parks nearby and lakes. I'd be happy to help........

Adam, I would have to agree Uptown is the way to go! It is a younger crowd that is looking to have a good time and meet people. There is plenty of culture, diversity, restaurants, theaters, and more. If you give me some more specifics on what you are looking for I would be happy to e-mail you some listings. Feel free to e-mail me if you are interested. E-mail:

There are indeed some nice areas in Northeast Minneapolis, but be very careful of specifically where you might choose. Check the crime statistics for the specific sub-area there as a couple of blocks can make a big difference. As far as a "younger feel", I would direct you to the Uptown area of Minneapolis. Lots of great restaurants, cultural and recreational activities, and many younger people in this "hip" area of Minneapolis. It's a great central location, from which you can get just about anywhere in the Twin Cities. Being from San Francisco, I would assume you would want a diverse and interesting neighborhood - Uptown would certainly be a good choice.

I hope that helps.

A couple of great towns are Hopkins and St. Louis Park. The houses are affordable and they both have upscale restaurants and shops. These towns are very progressive in that they are continually rebuilding and refurbishing the community. Young adults who are in their first jobs out of college are flocking to these areas. Excelsior and Grand in St. Louis Park is a beautiful area to spend an afternoon and the evenings won't disappoint, either. In Hopkins, the downtown area has a cool little theater, great restaurants, a cultural arts center and most activities are within walking distance. Please feel free to contact me and I'll be happy to get into specifics! ~ Jeanie Hoholik

You need to tell me if you are looking for a single family home or a condo. I could suggest several developments that would be great if you are looking for a condo. As far as single family, their are at least 25 different neighborhoods that I could suggest but you need to be more specific with what else is important to you. Feel free to contact me or search for homes below.

Near Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis is a pretty good area for young adults.
