Calhoun - Isles



Leafy, prosperous, gifted with--and named for--two of the city's finest lakes, Lake Calhoun and Lake of the Isles, Calhoun-Isles epitomizes the city's special brand of urban gentility. Strollers, bikers, and dog-walkers circle the lakes; autos make their way gingerly over traffic-calming bumps; and neighbors chat on generous front porches, while the Uptown business district draws Calhoun-Isles residents to its many restaurants, coffee houses, and offbeat retail offerings.
