For Twin Cities residents, the "must visit" spot in Minnesota to visit this summer isn't too far away.
Insider identified the increasingly less secret "Hidden Beach" in Minneapolis for its list of "What To Do In the Summer," in which it picked one location or activity in all 50 states.
The Hidden Beach has long been a favorite among Minneapolis locals, but if it starts getting this kind of national exposure it won't be long before the world and its dog is aware of it.
Located on the east side of Cedar Lake, accessing it requires a walk down a dirt path accessed via a dead-end street in the Kenwood neighborhood.
Once a nude beach and also home to a mud put, it became a infamous haunt among the city's alternative scene.
This in turn has led to complaints about drinking, drug use and violence on the beach, with the Star Tribune reporting there were even discussions among locals about closing it a few years ago.
More recently, they have tried to turn around the beach's reputation with family-friendly events and more police patrols.
