Day 51: Beach it at Bryant Lake

A Minnesota lake with a beach worth bragging about.

Bryant Lake's Sandy Beach
It’s a picturesque oasis no matter what time of year, but Bryant Lake is perhaps best savored in the summer weather. A clean, sandy beach that’s never crowded gives you more than enough reason to head south of the Cities for a day, but rowboat rentals, stand-up paddleboard classes, and even guided moonlit canoe rides should have you convinced. If you can pull yourself away from the beach, you’ll find a dog park and an 18-hole disc golf course to try your hand at as well. 6800 Rowland Rd., Eden Prairie, 763-694-7764, threeriversparks.org
