Relaxing bike ride

We had a relaxing time biking around Lake Calhoun and the other lakes in the area. It was a great way to spend the morning.

Lake Calhoun is a great place to people watch, enjoy water activities, walk or bike around the lake, and spend time with family or friends. It's located in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis with wonderful bars and restaurants. I have lived just blocks away for 7 years and absolutely love the location.

Took a nice walk around the lake it has some pretty views with the city behind it. Enjoyed being outside and it seemed like a clean area. The parking would only let you pay for an hour at a time so glad we only had an hour to spend there.

In the heart of the Uptown neighborhood, Lake Calhoun is a great place for the younger adults. Eat at Tin Fish then head over to Cal Surf (on Lake Street) for some great hip shopping: shoes, clothing, skateboards, and a lot more!

Plenty of great areas to walk, swim and play sports or just relax. Also great for jogging and biking and you can also rent paddle boards or boats. There is a restaurant on the northeast side of the lake that has some great eats as well.

Beautiful lake close to downtown. You can rent kayaks and paddleboats. There is a very nice restaurant by the lake which offers variety of seafood. Bicycles can be rented. Trails around the lake are for both pedestrians and bikers.

We rented "Nice Ride" bikes and took a ride around lake. Minneapolis has a wonderful system of bike/walk paths. There are also other rentals available (kayak/paddle board) and beach areas. All around the lake there are areas to just sit and take in the view. Homes in area are beautiful!

We were fortunate enough to visit Lake Calhoun and listen to a concert at the park pavilion. It was a perfect evening. The concession booth had delicious ice cream and gave very generous servings. We saw sailboats in the background, listened to music, and enjoyed the natural beauty of Minnesota.
