Best Place to Smoke a Doobie: Lakewood Park

Lakewood Park is great for tossing the Frisbee, joining a game of sand volleyball . . . or twistin' up a doober. Rock gently on a bench-swing or walk down to the breakwall, a concrete beach where rolling waves explode like mini-geysers, spraying you with lake foam. Jets lifting off from Hopkins circle the shore, silhouetted sailboats drift across the horizon, and the city twinkles to life as darkness descends. When your journey of the mind is complete, head on over to the IHOP on Detroit Avenue and tell all your fellow stoners what they're missing.
