Minneapolis is lucky to have this great trail which seems to go on for ever, around lakes, thru the city.. Good for families too.

This chain of lakes in the Grand Round is amazing...you can drive it, bike it, or walk it. We've lived in West suburb of Minneapolis for years and finally took the time to explore the Grand Round...in fact we spent a whole day exploring each part of the area! (I must admit that we DROVE rather than bike...). Take a picnic or just sit and enjoy but there's also plenty of exploring if you choose....this is truly an urban surprise and its beautiful.

The roads leading from one lake to another and around the city are excellent. Minneapolis has clearly invested money in its roadways and unless you are in major rush hour timing, it is convenient and easy to get around. It is lovely to see that this city is designed around its waterways and that there are great views in so many places, from 4 lakes to a waterfall, from several river fronts to viewing balconies and towers, in historic and modern neighborhoods and using all of these assets very well during the fine weather. We went to an Artcar parade around Lake Harriet that was fun, viewed walkers, bikers, and drivers...alll enjoying the fine views and good weather. It was well designed to allow for visiting.

Any leg of the Grand Round is beautiful, peaceful. Toilet facilities are fairly frequent as are water fountains to fill your bottles. We enjoy weekdays the most. Have biked with kids and very easy?

Great way to walk or bike and see the area around the river. The Stone Arch Bridge and Minnehaha Falls were my favorites.
