Making A Day of It
Hopkins is a bit of a haul from the north side of the metro, so when we go we like to make a day of it. We arrived early enough to get dinner and walk around a little. Hopkins Main Street is called "Art Street" because it has great little art exhibits you can explore on your own. With a smart phone, you can scan the QR codes to see a video about each piece at Think Hopkins. So it makes a great walking tour. The Hopkins Center for the Arts (the home of Stages Theatre) also has galleries that are free and open to the public. Other places to visit along Main Street include:
