Sometimes called "a small town in the city" or "The Small of America" (a knock on the massive Mall of America), Linden Hills is an upscale village that boasts lakes, fine dining and family fun. Pause for reflection at the Peace Gardens and Rose Gardens, hop back in time on an antique trolley, savor your pick of restaurants or enjoy a yoga retreat. Lake Harriet has a historic bandshell that hosts concerts every night from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Browse old-timey local establishments—there's a toymaker, bakery, butcher and hardware store—and you'll appreciate the neighborhood's motto: "Shop. Savor. Stroll."
