“Good execercise and Scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Minneapolis did a great job setting up these trails and tying in some great spots. You can easily skate, bike, or run along the Minnehaha Creek trail to the Chain of Lakes to Theodore Wirth Park and on. Its pretty crowded but worth the bike, run or skate.

“I think this should be a must for visitors to Minneapolis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Since I live pretty much right on this, this takes you throughout the beautiful lakes, creek and river and gives you a real flavor for our fair city. With the exception of one lake within the city, houses are not allowed to be right on the lakes, but are separated by parkways and beaches so that all might enjoy. Taking this Byway gives you the best view of all of it.

“The Minneapolis Park System is Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

We can almost put our vehicle on auto pilot since we take this drive so often in the spring, summer and fall. The city does a great job maintaining the park system and the drive around the many lakes is gorgeous. You can stop at any of the lakes along the route and spend more time if you like. Weekends are usually pretty crowded so the drive is slow but it's still worth the trip. There is plenty of signage to lead you around the entire area.

“Excellent Glimpse of Minneapolis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Gives a great glimpse of many parts of Minneapolis. If you don't have time to do it all, I would recommend at least the drive by the Chain of Lakes.
