White Bear Lake is a city in Minnesota.

By Train

Non-existant for the foreseeable future.

By Bus

White Bear Lake is poorly served by the Twin Cities' poorly implemented bus system. The majority of service is commuter based, and hence is mostly outbound during AM rush hour, and inbound during PM rush hour. It is advisable to avoid bus travel in the Twin Cities for all but the most researched mass transit users. A bus journey from White Bear Lake to Minneapolis St. Paul international airport, for example, is a very long and complicated journey involving numerous bus transfers. Bear in mind that just like the rest of the Twin Cites, White Bear Lake is littered with numerous "Bus Stops," yet again these stops are only used by well researched bus riders and one should never assume that an actual bus is going to drive by apart from the AM/PM rush hours. To attempt to plan your journey using the Twin Cities bus system try [1]

By Car

White Bear Lake lies on MN Highway 61, the same highway made famous by Bob Dylan and Robert Johnson. Therefore, from US694 use the Highway 61 exit and travel North until you hit 4th Street. Alternatively, from US35E use the Highway 96 exit and travel East, then head North on Highway 61 until 4th Street.

By Boat

The old paddle-wheel ferry that traveled between Wilernie and Manitou Island, White Bear Lake was shut down in the 1920's and scuttled to the bottom of the lake. You can view the wreck by plane or scuba.

During the summer, a fun place to treat yourself to an ice cream is the Cup and Cone (www.cupandconewbl.com)located at 2126 Fourth St, just off of Highway 61. The flavor of the month is always fun to try with prices starting at $0.47 for a kiddie cone.
