I spent my Up North summer vacations as a kid in Walker, Minn. I returned there recently wondering if it was as good as I remember. I wasn’t disappointed. The town ­— on Leech Lake’s Walker Bay — offers great fishing, a small-town feel and miles of trails. An expanding bike trail system proves that the town with a friendly, vintage vibe, also has changed with the times, striking a nice balance of nostalgia and modern amenities. As always, there’s Minnesota’s third largest inland lake to enjoy, a boon to fishermen, splashing children, and anyone who enjoys a sunset over water.
