Quintessential urban walk. Beautiful homes along the lakes, and especially on Lake of the Isles. Dog friendly, but keep 'em leashed. Walkers can choose to walk one, two, or three of the lakes (2.5 miles - up).

The Lake Harriet loop is my favorite! It's just the right distance for a daily walk or bike ride. There's a bandshell with great free entertainment in the summer and a concession booth. Harriet also has more trees than the other lakes that shade you from the sun om hot days and blocks the wind on some of the colder days. Wrap that all up with a beautiful rose garden that contains tons of a variety of colors and types of roses as well as other flowers and fountains. I highly recommend it.
