Nicollet Mall was built in 1967 and originally spanned eight blocks. Now, it's twelve blocks and has gone through two big renovations. There are several flagstaff stores including Dayton's, Target, and Saks OFF FIFTH. There are restaurants of all kinds, clothing stores, book stores, and so much more; it is an iconic site in Minnesota. In the summer, a farmer's market is hosted on Nicollet Mall's streets and the Holidazzle Parade in the winter.
