White Bear Lake is a city in Minnesota.
Non-existant for the foreseeable future.
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.

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.

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.
