Ice is out...check the lake beaches.

Ice is out of the lakes in most of Minnesota.

In North  Branch area the ice is GONE!

Now is a great time to see what the beaches look like on homes for sale.

The water is as clear as it will be all year.  Now is the time to see what the swim area is like.

Is it nice and sandy or is it muddy.

The needs that you want for a lake home can be narrowed down in a very short time.

North Branch Minnesota has many great lakes but you need to check them out for the type of recreation you will enjoy.

Where I grew up in Michigan this was the time of year all of our local ponds would start to dethaw and we couldn't ice skate on them anymore.
