Calhoun Isles (uptown), Minneapolis

The state of Minnesota is steadily developing its reputation as one of the most vibrant in the U.S. Minnesota has a lot to offer in terms of natural charm – it has more to offer than just its nickname, ‘Land of 10,000 Lakes’. Despite the fast pace of the 21st century and all its accompanying urban jungles, there are many aspects of the state that seem untouched.

Despite its untouched natural beauty, the state offers more than that. Minnesota’s ‘Twin Cities’ – Minneapolis and St. Paul – are becoming a foodie destination in their own right. This intriguing state also has many historical and cultural attractions.

Choosing the right place to live can, however, be a challenge especially for someone relocating to Minnesota. Many of the neighborhood offerings will appeal to singles as well as families.

It is easy to see why Calhoun-Isles is so appealing. In this community, one can truly enjoy the best of all worlds. Taking advantage of the amenities of the big city, the plentiful green spaces, and even a summer’s day at the shore on the edges of Bde Maka Ska.

Those seeking an exceptional work/life balance and an exceptional total well being can find both in Minneapolis – to the point where they need not go more than six blocks from a park.

There are a lot of places that make people from other cities envy the lifestyle of those living in Calhoun-Isles. At Bde Maka Ska, Thomas Beach attracts hordes of visitors during the summer. Nevertheless, the neighborhood has more to offer than just an outdoor lifestyle. Furthermore, after sundown, there is an amazing selection of dining establishments and attractions to delight even the most jaded seasoned residents of the Big City.

Consider the Lake and Irving Restaurant and Bar, one of the most frequented gastropubs in the area – when locals gather there you know the place has earned its stripes. The Korean restaurant has excellent patio service and dishes including ‘gochujang smoked chicken wings.’ You can also try La La Soft Ice Cream for its excellent ice cream and several very inventive flavors.

You can choose from a variety of accommodations in Calhoun-Isles, but if you really want to cause your budget manager an anxiety attack, this Victorian-style house on Lowry street may be the best choice. Try purchasing a home in Kenwood, where homes in the ultra-wealthy sometimes appear on the current market.
