Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Our neighborhood is quiet, friendly, and beautifully wooded with heritage white oaks throughout. There is a small neighborhood park with a playground at the end of our street (which is a 3 minute walk from our house). We can bike through the neighborhood about 5 minutes to connect up with the extensive regional bike trail system that can bring you out to Lake Minnetonka or in to Minneapolis. The bike trails are really a point of pride here and well maintained -- Minneapolis is consistently rated one of the best cities for biking.

The Charles H Burwell House on the edge of our neighborhood is a historical house museum with a wonderful park on the Minnehaha Creek that can be used as a swimming hole when the creek is flowing. We are about a ~10 minute drive to Lake Minnetonka, ~12 minutes to Excelsior Commons, and ~15 minutes to downtown Minneapolis.

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

While Minnesota is known as the Land of Lakes, we feel it should also be known as the Land of Parks. Within a 15 minute drive of our house we have too many beautiful parks to name them all but would highlight: Gray's Bay Dam Park (at the headwaters for Minnehaha Creek at the exit point for Lake Minnetonka), Theodore Wirth Regional Park with the Eloise Butler Butterfly Garden, Purgatory Park (with an off-leash dog park), Fort Snelling State Park, Minnehaha Regional Park (with the Minnehaha waterfall and another amazing off-leash dog park). The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum is ~20 minute drive and is phenomenal year-round.

Obviously, Minneapolis and St Paul are also two huge cities with lots to explore from art museums to breweries and restaurants and much more.
