Chances are you either live near this Lake Minnetonka community or have heard of it. Minutes from Minneapolis, Wayzata is its own destination where mansions spill out onto manicured lawns and boats pull right up to restaurants. Park along Lake Street and peruse the dozens of shops offering everything from antiques and artwork to designer denim and eyewear. Of the bounty of high-end shops, don’t miss the stylish doggie accessories at Lulu & Luigi, the incredible French perfume at the lovely Cherie Boutique Francaise, and the gorgeous bouquets up the road at Nature’s Harvest. For a bite, Patrick’s Bakery is a good corner bistro, or in the summer, head west to the legendary lakeside Lord Fletcher’s.
