In the heart of Minneapolis, Whittier is a thriving urban residential neighborhood just south of Downtown. Whittier is known for the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (MIA), Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD), and Children’s Theatre Company (CTC).

All Twin Citians know about “Eat Street”, the vibrant restaurant scene on Nicollet Avenue which features cuisine from across the world — African, American, Caribbean, Chinese, German, Greek, Mexican, Middle Eastern, and Vietnamese. Most include vegetarian, vegan and other options for discerning diners.

With wonderful arts and delicious food, Whittier is home to cultural, social, recreational, and educational businesses for families. We invite you to experience the good life that makes Minneapolis a top-rated city in the nation.

Named for American poet John Greenleaf Whittier, Whittier is a place of culture, richness, and heritage. Carrying the tradition of entrepreneurship and open arms, Whittier is a vibrant place of both multi-generational families and new ethnic businesses. A place to celebrate, cherish, and make new memories.
