Welcome to Wayzata… The Gateway to Lake Minnetonka!

No visit to the Twin Cities is complete without a stop in Wayzata, the jewel of Lake Minnetonka.  Experience the best place to see Minnesota’s most popular lake.  Discover a quaint village rich in history.  Shop the latest in lakeside fashions, artwork, antiques and collectibles.  Enjoy the eclectic assortment of restaurants that range from casual to elegant.  Most offer lakefront views, and none are more than a stone’s throw from the water. Gaze upon the cruisers as they go by or look out at picturesque clusters of sailboats.  In the winter, you’ll see ice racers, skaters and dozens of ice fishing houses.  Our theater of seasons never shuts down.  Wayzata is truly a destination for all seasons.  We invite you to shop, eat and enjoy all that Wayzata has to offer.
