Before heading to St. Paul in my second day. I decided to check the second most visited place in Minnesota after Mall of America, the Lake Calhoun which is part of the so called Chain of lakes. The weather that time is freezing and I am not able to get lively photos though. I drove around the lake and by looking at it I think there's lot of activities going on there during warmer season, there are bike paths, walkways, playgrounds, picnic areas etc. The skyline of downtown Minneapolis can be seen from a distance and seems nice to capture at night time. The distance around the lake is 3.2 miles.
Lake Calhoun is the most popular, visited, visible as well as being the largest of the Chain of Lakes in Minneapolis. Once around the lake is about 3 miles(5 km). There is a pedestrian only walkway, a bike and rollerblading trail and a road that surrounds the lake.
During the warmer months, especially the summer months, the lake is a very popular place fo walkers, runners, cyclists, rollerbladers, sunbathers, swimmer, watersports enthusiasts as well as drivers.
There are 3 primary beaches on the lake. On the South side of the lake is the main beach with a pay parking lot. On the East side is a smaller beach are and on the North side off of Lake St. is also a smaller beach. There is a Pavillion on the North East side and at various points on the lake are sailboat moors. On the South east side is the beach volleyball courts.
Parking at pay parking lots or on the street surrounding the lake or on some side streets surrounding the lake are availablbe. But check signs for any restrictions.

Summer isn't long. Better take advantage!
Lake Calhoun is a beautiful place to spend a summer day jogging, fishing, windsurfing, sailing or just hanging out. This lake is actually part of a chain of lakes (five of them) that are connected by small channels.
