There is a historical part of Saint Paul which is filled with wonderful houses, one more beautiful than the other. If you can, choose the Summit Avenue to get to your destination, but don't take the bus or car, go on foot. And don't forget you camera. The houses that line the street are historically and architecturally significant. Not to mention marvelous.

I believe there are tours that tell you more about the houses, however we weren't fortunate to attend any. Check out the website for more info.
