THE CITY


Why Saint Paul?
  • Historic buildings abound with 104 landmarks listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
  • Summit Avenue features the longest stretch of preserved Victorian architecture in the United States.
  • Modeled after St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican in Rome, the Cathedral of Saint Paul is one of the most elaborate cathedrals in the United States.
  • The city prides itself on adaptive reuse/repurposing of its existing architecture, rather than tearing down and building new.
  • The Historic Lowertown District has recently become a bustling hub of restaurants, pubs, outdoor concerts, and the Green Line light rail system.
  • Saint Paul is known as the "City of Neighborhoods," each offering a celebration of the city's long-cherished heritage and diversity.
