3. Square Lake
Yeah, yeah, yeah, Mpls is the City of Lakes. But you know what? Aside from East Cedar and a precious few other a'ite swims, it's not the City of Great Swimming Holes, which's why #3 on our humble cull jumps back outside the urban core to the we-sh*t-you-not crystal-clear waters of Stillwater's Square Lake, which might be ranked higher if it was actually square and not that oblong, plop shape that all lakes are.
