Here in Minnesota, we hold off uttering the word "winter" until the bitter (ly cold) end. While the weather is getting colder, there is STILL TIME for your pup to get a quick swim! Check out these 3 lesser-known spots, and enjoy a splash on a sunny day!
1. Anoka MN Boat Launch (Rum River)
This is my favorite spot for weekdays after work. You'll have to stand aside if people want to get their boats in the water, but it's almost always empty. Mica and River LOVE a quick round of fetch-the-floating-Frisbee here, and it is easy for them to enter and exit the water safely with the concrete boat ramp. Stop on down when the weather's warm! It's only a short walk from the parking lot to the water!
