In the heart of Minneapolis with a beautiful waterfall and a huge park! Worth the trip! Fall colors were beautiful this year!

Minneapolis is the only City I have been too that can offer this fresh water lake experience right downtown. The City is surrounded by ten (10) to twelve (12) beautiful lakes. Minneapolis takes their Lakes serious and has running ,walking and bike paths around all the Lakes. During the warmer months several of the larger lakes have bandstand and concession stands that offer traditional snacks, canoe rentals and evening concerts. Nothing can beat a Sunday drive with the windows down around Lake of the Woods, Calhoun ,Harriett and then down Minnehaha Parkway to the Falls. Better yet rent a canoe and tour Lake of the Woods and Cedar Lake.

Continuous trail (although we didn't go all the way) around the beautiful neighborhoods. Would have loved to have the time for a run when we were there!

See this area on Sunday morning before the city wakes up otherwise it is to crowded with people wanting to be seen in an upscale location.

This is one of the highlights of Minneapolis. There's so much to do. You can walk, bike, canoe, sail, swim, sit and picnic. In spring, summer & wall, with the right weather, they are beautiful.
