Macalester - Groveland


Students and homeowners mingle harmoniously in this dignified but lively neighborhood, which is anchored by the Presbyterian Macalester College in the east and part of the Catholic University of St. Thomas in the west. The mostly pre-1940s homes here are rich with woodwork, leaded glass, and the look of being cared for. Macalester's retail zone along Grand Avenue offers a mix of urban amenities that are more grown-up than what's found in most college business districts, including a range of intriguingly offbeat boutiques and gift shops. The intersection of Grand and Hamline is another highlight: the popular Sixth Chamber bookstore, the Grand Shanghai restaurant, Wells Pianos, and Just Truffles are all within a block of one another.
