Lake Minnetonka

Lake Minnetonka

Encompassing more than 14,500 acres of water, Lake Minnetonka features 125 miles of shoreline and an abundance of coves, bays, and islands just west of the Twin Cities area.

For centuries, Native American tribes lived in the area before it was found by two boys paddling up the Minnehaha Creek in 1822.

The name "Lake Minnetonka" stems from an American Indian meaning of "big waters," and is unsurprisingly one of the Minnesota's largest lakes.

The lake is known for its excellent outdoor reaction – including boating, fishing, swimming, hiking the shores, and much more.

Manitou Days

A three-week summer event, Manitou Days has been a fixture of the White Bear Lake calendar since the 1967. Found in the Twin Cities area of southern Minnesota, Manitou Days features roughly 70 events from mid-June to the Fourth of July.

Other features include live music, the White Bear Shopping Center Arts & Crafts Fair, the Gangster Bus Tour, and performances from the famed Midwest Ski Otters.

Pine Tree Apple Orchards

With history dating back to the early 1900s, Pine Tree Apple Orchards is a community and tourist staple of White Bear Lake. Nestled along the shores of Pine Tree Lake, just northeast of the Twin Cities, the orchard features plenty family-friendly activities and tasty apple treats.

Some of the activities found at the orchard include pony rides, wagon rides, and corn maze walk-throughs. Don’t miss the annual events held at the orchard, like the Pine Tree Apple Tennis Classic in August, as well as the five-mile Run & Walk for the Apples in October.
