Saint Paul may not have the Chain of Lakes, but it does have Lake Phalen for those looking to keep east and enjoy the water. To its credit, it’s a bit more quiet and serene for those who may find the Lake Calhoun side of things a tad overwhelming, especially in the thick of summer. Residents of Saint Paul are lucky to have Lake Phalen. If I were to be picky, I could complain about the overwhelming crowds that have the tendency to take over the Chain of Lakes in Minneapolis. Lake Phalen, however, remains blissfully serene for the most part, and that was certainly the case when Sara and I took our stand-u p paddleboards to the Lake Phalen Boat Launch for an easy 2.6-mile paddle around the lake.
