With the effect of the coronavirus, we all take care of not to be in crowded environments as possible. We are seeing the negative effects of urbanization nowadays, our travel passion pushes us towards nature. Both UNWTO's emphasis on nature tourism and our instincts generate an increasing demand for nature tourism. As the Sitorbis family, we want to offer you an alternative destination in this regard. 

In this article, our destination is Minnesota and our touristic product will be its lakes. If you're ready, let's start! 


Lake of The Isles

Isles Lake is connected to Cedar Lake and Bde Maka Lake. Activities such as cycling, hiking, canoeing, fishing, camping and golf are available in the lake. In winter it is also used for ice hockey and ice skating sports with the ice holding of the lake. Lake Ises is known for its two forested islands, long northern branch, magnificent Kenwood houses, Lowry Hill and the East Isles neighborhoods. Wildlife on two forested islands is under protection. 


Bde Maka Ska (Calhoun Lake)

Formerly known as Lake Cohoon, the lake is surrounded by Lake Isles in the northeast, Cedar Lake and Brownie Lake in the northwest and Lake Harriet in the south. Part of  way of The Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway passes through here. There is a 3.4-mile track for cycling and rollerblading and a 3.2-mile track for pedestrians. These tracks are linked with the Lake Isles and Lake Harriet tracks. The lake is popular between the people who loves canoe, ski, paddle surfing and sailing. In addition, there are three swimming beaches on the lake called 32. St. Beach, North Beach and Thomas Beach. There are parks and picnic areas, sand volleyball courts and athletics areas around the lake.


Lake Harriet 

As part of the chain of lakes, Lake Harriet, is located southwest of Minneapolis, south of Bde Maka Ska and north of Minnehaha Creek. There are two beaches on the lake called North Beach and Southeast Beach, with a bicycle and pedestrian path. Canoe, cycling, boat and paddle surfing, pier fishing can be available at the lake. There is also an entertainment center known as Bandshell, which is used for local and high-end catering restaurants, and  for concerts and events.

The region of the chain of lakes, which includes many recreational activities, is a special place to see and travel. In these days when the coronavirus (Covid-19) is spreading rapidly, you can travel short distances in Minnesota and perform many activities in touch with nature.
