Stevens Square is close to most of the major attractions in the Minneapolis area.

The closest destination is the Minneapolis Convention Center just across Interstate 94. The convention center is host to many major conventions and shows throughout the year, many of which are open to the public.
Located near the convention center off Nicollet Avenue is the Minnesota Orchestra. The venue is home to numerous different events throughout the year, including the highly popular Christmas Concert which is held each year. Another popular cultural destination which is about a mile away from Stevens Square off 2nd Street is the Guthrie Theater. The Guthrie Theater has many theatrical productions throughout the year, many of which are Broadway style performances.
Next to the Guthrie Theater is the Mill City Museum. This interesting museum was built into the ruins of an old flour mill. The museum provides a history of Minneapolis, the Mississippi River, and of the flour mill industry as a whole.
On the other side of the Guthrie Theater is Gold Medal Park. The park is an architectural masterpiece providing excellent views overlooking the Mississippi River and an interesting take on structural art. It is a great place to relax and take a picnic, and is a must see for visitors.
