Stillwater Minnesota, a lovely small town on the St. Croix river is a jewel of this valley. With numerous restaurants, hotels and B&Cs, bars, a wonderful library, designer shops, book stores, jewelers, all along a narrow Main Street and its side streets along the river, it is worth a weekend discovery visit.
My favorites in downtown are the metal statues and murals. the statues are distributed all over town (with price tags) and change every once in a while when one has been purchased by art lovers or other cities. The murals are found in side streets and back alleys, along main street, several of them depicting Stillwater’s Lumberjack days of glory in the mid 19th century.
Do I have favorite places to go to? Of course I have. If you want to try the best BLT in town, in my opinion it is the one at Leo’s on the corner of Main Street and the street that leads to the old, now closed Stillwater Bridge.
Every since the new St. Croix Crossing bridge was opened and this old bridge closed to the main traffick, Stillwater’s Main Street is not jammed with cars anymore. The area around the old bridge is walkeable, believe it or not!
Stillwater is worth a visit, it sure is. Stay tuned for photography and some more information.
