Home to Saint Paul's most active Latino community, Saint Paul's West Side is filled with fantastic restaurants and the best river views in town.
Contrary to popular belief, Saint Paul's West Side actually lies south of downtown—the name comes from its location on the west bank of the Mississippi River. This immediate adjacency to the river makes it an ideal spot to access the water via Harriet Island Regional Park, the Covington Inn or a kayak excursion with Minnesota Adventure Company. Dig into Saint Paul's history on a tour with Wabasha Street Caves or celebrate the area's vibrant Mexican heritage at the Twin Cities' premier Cinco de Mayo Festival. Last but certainly not least, is the food scene. West Side's District del Sol is committed to preserving the neighborhood's Latino roots, and you'll find some of the Midwest's tastiest authentic restaurants here.
