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, Asian fusion, Caribbean, Chinese, German, Greek, Mexican, Middle Eastern, and Vietnamese. Vegetarian options are also abound.

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

Minneapolis’ Main Street 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 family and new ethnic minority businesses. This past is now your future to celebrate, cherish, and make new memories.
