Last summer I decided to visit my extended family out in Minnesota. A majority of my family in Minnesota lives around the Minneapolis metropolitan area, which gave me plenty of options in regards to how I would spend my week in the twin cities. Minnesota is famous for their beautiful lakes so I wanted to spend some time around them near the city. I decided to bike around Lake of the Isles. It turned out to be a great idea during those hot summer days that hit the Midwest, and I didn’t have to spend any money. If your looking to get outside and save a little money go check out Lake of the Isles.
