In the 1920s and 1930s, St. Paul was known as a safe haven for many of the country's most notorious hoodlums. Many of the clubs and speakeasies in downtown were frequented by mobsters and used to establish bootlegging and gun running operations in the city. Along the bluffs of the Mississippi across the river from downtown sit a number of caves created by sand mining. Wabasha Street Caves is one such unique nightclub here. The 45-minute tour of the caves is a fascinating mix of geological history, St. Paul history, and good old-fashioned fun. As numerous bullet holes will attest, the caves saw their share of criminal activity. Other tours are offered, such as Ghosts & Graves in October, and the Gangster Tour of St. Paul via motorcoach. Call for information.
