“bays and islands add interest”
Review of Lake of the Isles

Lake of the Isles
Ranked #3 of 190 things to do in Minneapolis

Attraction details
Reviewed October 26, 2012

In spring the islands become rookeries. The loopy path around the many bays on this lake mean there's always something else to see around the next curve. Bike, blade or walk. Separate paths mean there's room for all.

I love walking around Lake of the Isles, seeing the different (gorgeous) houses, and reveling in the gorgeous scenery. It's beautiful in every season, and one of my favorites retreats.

Most scenic and least amount of foot and bike traffic. Great homes surround the lake for you to gawk at.

I was worried as I was going out for a run on my own....not a problem at all. There are lots of runners and lots of walkers around Lake of the Isles and Calhoun Lake...really lovely run and very safe too!

Worth heading to the Lakes (Isles, Calhoun, Harriet) if you have some free time and are looking to get outside. Great trails for running and a beautiful part of town.
