“Biking around Minneapolis”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

There are so many trails as part of the Grand Rounds, you need to map out your strategy. It can be very busy, so you need to watch the signs at intersections carefully so you don't get caught up in the flow and miss your turn. Well maintained and great fun.

“Why we live here!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Pack a picnic, set aside a few hours in the evening and find out what makes Minneapolis a great place. At least 6 lakes, two grand waterfalls, a mighty river, a storied creek and green space aplenty.
This drive is a little sketchy here and there and occasionally we see the seamier side, but mostly it is treat and a treasure.
Congratulations to our forefathers who laid it out.

“Best Parkway System I have ever visited!!!!!!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

The scenic beauty in the summertime is fantastic for a urban park system. The chain of lakes with their beaches. bike and walking trails are fantastic. Well designed and beautifully landscaped/ This system of parks in Minneapolis is hard to beat. Now if they only could do something about Minneapolis winters!!!!!

“Scary Areas”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Seems okay to cruise in your car but it goes thru some really bad neighborhoods. You have to be careful on the victory drive stretch, I've seen some scary people packing heat on that stretch.
