I think the mosquitoes have been trained by our military...ingenious. Right George? However.. a beautiful place with proper attire.

I attended a bridal shower this summer at a home on the shore of Lake Minnetonka. It was a gorgeous day with a cold front pushing the rain and humidity out and leaving a clear day. We spent the day on the deck so we had great views. Lake Minnetonka cores 14,528 acres and is actually Minnesota’s ninth largest lake! Hard to believe it is sitting at #9 when you fly over it! Really beautiful, but the roads, especially in Mound, can get very congested with boaters on a Saturday. Plan ahead!

We are so relaxed when we visit our family in Eagan, MN. Our favorite thing to do together is pontooning around Lake Minnetonka. It's the most perfect place to relax. It has restaurants to get to via docking, plenty of wildlife, great areas to anchor and swim, and the people are so friendly. I absolutely love it!

The area was beautiful. We chose this particular lake to visit on vacation because of the two young children in our party. This lake has a swim pond which was perfect. The area around the pond is a sandy beach. There are lifeguards, a limited concession stand, restrooms and showers. The cost is $5 per person and a wristband is then worn by each visitor.

I was here on a boat trip on the Minnehaha. Boaters can admire the huge mansions of the wealthy along the shore. We left from Excelsior, one of the largest lake towns. Most of the towns around Lake Minnetonka are very small.. There are many restaurant options for hungry diners around the lake. Within the last few years, bicycling to the lake has become much easier. Those coming from the west can take the Dakota Rail trail from Lester Prairie.to Wayzata. I have biked the very flat trail. Those coming from the east can bicycle the gravel Luce Line Trail to Wayzata. The Lake Minnetonka LRT trail takes visitors from Hopkins to Minnetonka, Shorewood and Excelsior. If you plan to take a cruise or visit one of the many restaurants around the lake, plan on a couple of hours to enjoy the lake, eat and maybe shop. Very limited bus service is available on weekdays. Metro transit routes 670, 671, 645, and 677 run to Lake Minnetonka. The 645 route also runs to Wayzata on weekends.
