We Love MSP: A Guide to 50th & France
With MSP having somewhat of a moment, I am hoping to help readers from out of town discover our northern city one neighborhood at a time. We’re going to start with 50th and France. We were asked to help them focus their social media strategy this summer and through the process it just seemed like a no-brainer to include a little city guide to kick-off this endeavour!
A little bit about the neighborhood: The business district known as 50th and France got it’s namesake from the two cross streets that mark the center of the neighborhood. The bustling cluster of businesses are located in Edina, Minnesota, flanked by Lake Harriet and Minnehaha Creek. This city is known for it’s great school district, beautiful parks, bustling art fair, and it’s ideal location with a close proximity to city life with all the charm of a quaint town. The business district has boomed over the decades and it seems now more than ever, this idea of a “main street” is just as much about community as it is prosperity.
Below you’ll find a new of my favorite locations to visit. There’s plenty more to explore, with a full list of businesses available here.
- Parc (5023 France Avenue South , Minneapolis MN 55410) – I worked on PARC’s branding way back in 2012 and I’ve so enjoyed watching them evolve over the years! PARC is a women’s boutique specializing in clothing, jewelry, accessories, apothecary & shoes. They have a great selection of modern essentials for those who love special pieces that won’t break your budget.
As I said in the beginning of this posts, this is just a small peek inside this small corner of Edina. For more information about the neighborhood and business district, visit www.50thandfrance.com.
