“If you're gonna walk around one lake...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

in Minneapolis, then Lake Calhoun is the one to walk around. You will see a lot of other people who love this lake, it is close to many other Uptown Minneapolis attractions, and you will see a great view of the skyline from one part of the walk. Minnesotans LOVE their lakes, this is one of the favorites!

“lovely place to walk, bike, etc”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Just visited in Nov.2012...chilly for me, though the lake was lovely. Approx. 3 miles around with really nice walking paths and/or biking paths. More activities available in warmer months. Saw several people fishing from boats. Great place to go for exercise year-round. Hard to believe a lake so large in residential area.

“Nice spot to take a walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It's a nice hidden spot in Uptown Minneapolis. Walking and biking path are full of people walking their dogs. Just a nice place to take a walk in a beautiful setting.
