“A nice walk but a tad crowded”
Review of Lake Calhoun

Reviewed June 29, 2013

Lake Calhoun is a very fun lake to walk around, and especially people watch. The Tin Fish restaurant is very good and the ambiance of a little harbor is very welcome, being in the middle of a very busy metropolitan area. If you don't mind a LOT of people the Lake of the Isles lakes are a great place for exercise.

Lake Calhoun is thriving with an array of people. During the spring throughout summer and fall, this lake is packed with minnesota's finest. There is biking, skating and walking trails, as well as beaches, parks, sailing and fishing areas. It's connected to the hip uptown area and is somewhere the natives to minnesota would call the hottest area in minnesota. My personal favorite!

Lake Calhoun is a beautiful and well maintained lake.
I had a great time walking with my partner along the lake.
People can kayak, windsurf, jog, walk or just sit back and soak the sun.
If you have couple of hours to spend the afternoon, this is a great place to go.

If you have an hour, Lake Calhoun is a very relaxing lovely lake to stroll around. You can stop and get a bite to eat by the water or cut across to Yogurt Lab to get refreshed. Really nice.
