Next on the list is a place you’ve likely just driven by (if you are ever in the area). The North Shore Marina. This one is from Browns Bay but there is also Smiths Bay and Maxwell Bay in Wayzata, Excelsior and Big Island. It’s a place to slip for bigger boats and has a club house, you know, to club in. ;). Not only does it have the best sign but it is in a prime spot to see some of the most beautiful boats (yacht and sail boat, mostly) on Lake Minnetonka.
