Lino Lakes boasts beautiful lakes and natural beauty, making this town a great place to unplug and get outside. At the heart of town is 5,500-acre Rice Creek Chain of Lakes Regional Park Preserve. Winter or summer, you could spend a full day in this park. Check out the Wargo Nature Center, tee off at Chomonix Golf Course, pack a picnic, bring the family camping, or go cross-country skiing. If you’re looking for exercise, the park has many great hiking and biking trails as well. While Lino Lakes has many outdoor activities, it’s only a 20 minute drive to downtown Minneapolis or downtown Saint Paul – so you can spend time in the Cities and explore the great outdoors, all in one day.
