Explore Wayzata

Wayzata is located on Lake Minnetonka, 12 miles from downtown Minneapolis. The small community of around 4,000 residents is one of the wealthiest in the state.

Resting upon the beautiful Wayzata Bay, the city offers an abundance of recreational activities. In the summer, Wayzata Beach is a perfect spot for the entire family with sand, picnic areas, playground, canoe racks, volleyball court, boat slips and playing fields. Steamboat Minnehaha, which runs from Wayzata to Excelsior, will take you back in time around the beautiful Wayzata Bay.

A downtown shopping experience is designed to please the most demanding and wealthy residents of Wayzata. The lakefront boutiques offer a full range of lakeside fashions, antiques, collectibles, and artwork. There are plenty of wonderful restaurants around the area and several of them can be accessed via boat. Places such as Maynard’s and Bayside allow boaters to dock while they enjoy a meal.
