I feel like a visit to Lake Minnetonka when you're in Minneapolis is a must! We rented a private boat for a bachelorette party and had a blast. Water was cold, but refreshing.

Lake Minnetonka is absolutely amazing. In addition to the shopping and shore side restaurants, the houses on the lake are breath-taking. Multi million dollar homes line the lake, while large yachts roam the waters.

Every year as part of a business meeting, a group of us take a dinner cruise on the lake. It offers beautiful views of great homes, lovely trees and it's fun to watch the locals out on the water.
