Not considered as an architectural masterpiece, City Center opened to mixed reviews in the early 1980s and has gone through a number of face lifts over the years. It was under renovation till fall 2005. Comprised of an office, hotel and shopping complex, City Center was the first enclosed, suburban-style shopping mall downtown. Flocked by shoppers and foodies on a regular basis, City Center is a perfect hangout when with friends. Check website for further details.
One of Minnesota's architectural landmarks, the IDS Center is a full block complex that includes a 57-story office tower, the Marquette Hotel and Crystal Court, home to numerous hig end chain shops. Basil's Restaurant provides a magnificent view of the 105-foot waterfall located in the center of these shops. Upstairs, a great little juice bar called Sola Squeeze will quench any thirst.

This grand beaux-arts church was the nation's first basilica, taking 20 years to complete. Built during the tenure of Archbishop John Ireland, the enormous white marble building is a marvel to behold. It is 120 feet wide by 278 feet long supporting 133-foot twin towers in the front. One of the towers houses a 3000-pound bell that can be heard for miles around. Over the altar, an ornate dome rises 250 feet and the 56 rank pipe organ echoes throughout. Guided tours are offered every Sunday morning.
