Lake Harriet is one of the 13 lakes in Minneapolis. The walking path is 2.75 miles, and the biking path is 2.99 miles. Currently, they have the parkway open to pedestrians for social distancing.
One of the best things about this lake is looking at the many houses that overlook the water as we walk/bike. The houses are diverse in architecture and most are large with a ton of windows. Occasionally, we will guess how much they are worth. We are floored to see the cost not only of the homes, but also the property taxes.
The castle-like pavilion has excellent coffee and a variety of foods if you get hungry. We are sad that the beaches are not going to be open this year, but thankful they didn’t close the pathways.
