Minnesota Streetcar Museum: Como-Harriet Line
Step back to the days when the streetcar was king – when Twin Citians went to work, to school, and to play by trolley! Visit the historic displays in the Minnesota Streetcar Museum station, then take a nostalgic ride on one of their historic streetcars along a scenic route between the lakes. Your Motorman will provide interesting information about the car and Minnesota streetcar history. Como-Harriet Streetcar Line A visit to the Como-Harriet Streetcar Line offers more than just a streetcar ride. After your trip back in time, enjoy the beauty of Lake Harriet, part of Minneapolis' famed Chain of Lakes. You'll find lakeside refreshments, picnic grounds, ducks to feed, concerts of all kinds, boats and canoes for rent, a playground, the Roberts Bird Sanctuary, the Rose and Rock Gardens, and a series of bicycle and walking trails. You can also eat, drink, and shop in "downtown" Linden Hills - a neighborhood created by the streetcar. Just one block from the Linden Hills Boulevard stop or two blocks from the Linden Hills Station, you'll find interesting shops including the Bibelot Shop, Creative Kidstuff toys, and Wild Rumpus kids books and plenty to eat and drink including the Great Harvest Bakery, Sebastian Joe's ice cream, and Coffee.
