Day 70: Where Beach Meets Streets

Excelsior brings scenery, shopping, and sweets within walkable distance.

Excelsior Commons Beach
After strolling through quaint Excelsior and grabbing a cone at Lick’s, head down the road to the Excelsior Commons Beach, where you will be pleased to find a bandshell, jungle gym, and beautiful view of Lake Minnetonka. A well-rounded selection of shops, plus a place for the kids to frolic makes this part of our regular summer Saturday routine (and we swear it’s not just for the fudge!) 1 Water St., Excelsior, 952-474-5233, ci.excelsior.mn.us
