“Beautiful after dinner walk”
Review of Lake of the Isles

Lake of the Isles
Ranked #16 of 221 things to do in Minneapolis

Reviewed 22 June 2014

We read about this walk and headed over after dinner on a beautiful summer evening. What a treat! The path is paved and easy to follow - everything was lush and green, after all the rain! Off in the distance you can see the Minneapolis skyline - but on the path you feel so far removed from the city. Wonderful walk!

I would say that this is the best lake in twin cities. Walking round the lake is highly refreshing particularly in summer. Beautiful trees surrounding the lake makes it a contemplating place. People are sometimes seen fishing although fishes are rare.

The chain of lakes in the twin cities makes it a wonderful place to visit. Walk around this lake in the winter, put on a long coat, and pretend you are Mary Tyler Moore from her old television series. Yup, this is the one she walked around

This is the one to stroll to gaze at the gorgeous mansions. It's also a great part of the chain of three lakes to bike through and gawk. No concession area here, which is maybe a negative, or, depending on your tastes, a positive in that it's less commercial and busy.

AS everyone suggested walking around lake of the isles can be a nice experience. What is better? Kayaking in the lake.

If want to spice stuff up, try the stand up paddle board.

Word of advice: generally the you can get coupons at half the price if u are buying ahead (groupon or amazon local).
