Bottineau is a neighborhood located North East of Minneapolis. It is flanked by Lowry Avenue to the north, 16th and 17th avenues to the south, University Avenue to the East, and Mississippi river to the west. The town was named after its former politician, Pierre Bottineau, and started out as a residential area before becoming modernity picked up.
The population of Bottineau is around 1684 people. This sparse population is due to the fact that Bottineau was once an abandoned town during the white flight of the 50s and 60s. Artists started moving in the area in the 18th century and converted most of what was left into an art town. Therefore, Bottineau is a perfect neighborhood for anyone who loves art and is looking for an affordable area to rent.
Given that Bottineau is heavily an artistic neighborhood, one of the ready attractions in the area is the abundance of art centers. Other ready attractions are the three main parks of Lake Metigoshe State, Tommy Turtle, and Bottineau Winter parks. For a quick bite or planned dinner, great restaurants to visit include Herbel’s Dario, Marie’s, Denny’s Pizza Inn, China in Restaurant, and Norway House Motel and Restaurant Inc.
Bottineau’s artsy environment is perfect for young artists looking to build their life. The town is sparsely populated, rent is relatively cheap, and there is plenty of exciting attractions to visit.
