After over 11,000 votes for the top 20 lakes, you've narrowed it down to Minnesota's elite eight lakes.  Now, it's time to whittle that number down to the final two before we announce a winner April 30. 

Vote now: Round 1 - Lake Waconia v Lake Superior

The contenders

Lake Superior | Crane Lake | Lake Waconia | Lake Pepin | Lake Kabetogama | Rainy Lake | Lake Vermilion | Lake Minnewaska

Click on any of the lakes above to learn more about them, and cast your ballot below. We also asked what makes each lake so special to those who nominated it as their favorite. Read their stories on the features for each lake, linked above.

With help from the Water Main, we'll host a performance on the shore of the winning lake.
