Hot Girl Walks: Take advantage of the numerous parks and nature reserves in the area, such as Minnehaha Park and Fort Snelling State Park, for scenic hikes and walks amidst budding trees and blooming flowers. Participate in one of the many running or walking events held in the Twin Cities during the spring, such as the Get in Gear race or the Twin Cities Heart Walk. If organized walks aren't really your speed, you can always grab some girls and meet for coffee, and take a walk around one of the Lakes in Minneapolis.
