11 Glorious Waterfront Trails In Minnesota To Take On A Summer’s Day

Summer in Minnesota gets pretty humid. But because the season is so short, we Minnesotans would rather not resort to the air-conditioned indoors to escape the heat. In a state with more than 10,000 lakes, it’s much better – and maybe much easier – to find a nice lake or stream to cool off in instead. These 11 waterfront trails will help you cool off while you enjoy the outdoors.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
