This stunning Midwestern state, known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes, offers visitors a nearly endless itinerary of activities to enjoy. While the city slicker can enjoy touring the state’s Twin Cities metropolises, the outdoor adventure can take solace in the spectacular silence of Voyageurs National Park or the Boundary Waters Canoe Acre Wilderness. The moral of the story is that no matter what visitors are looking for, Minnesota has it. The spectacular state has grown up since its early days of a timber-dependent economy, offering a stunning array of historic and natural sites for all.
Visitors flock to the Twin Cities—Minneapolis and St. Paul—to enjoy the urban amenities of the Midwestern state. Visitors to Minneapolis can satiate their thirst for arts and culture. The city is home to world-renowned art museums such as the Minneapolis Institute of the Arts, The Museum of Russian Art and Walker Art Center. Those who would like to learn more about Minnesota’s immigration past can stop by the American Swedish Institute while visitors interested in exploring the city’s industry boom can head to Mill City Museum. Minneapolis also features the prominent Minnesota Film Arts center, which hosts a number of independent films and film festivals. Shopping enthusiasts can live their retail dreams at the enormous Mall of America, while children can explore the mall’s Nickelodeon Universe or the Sea Life Minnesota Aquarium. Visitors looking for outdoor entertainment can escape to the nearby 193-acre Minnehaha Park, which is home to the picturesque 53-foot Minnehaha Falls and spectacular views of the Mississippi River. Football enthusiasts can retire in a stadium seat to enjoy a Minnesota Vikings game at the HHH Metrodome.
Nearby St. Paul is the proud capital of Minnesota. Although St. Paul is smaller than Minneapolis, the city offers historic charm and numerous outdoor adventures along the Mississippi River. History buffs must stop by historic Fort Snelling, which has made its home in St. Paul since the early 1820s. Guests can learn about military history, the fur trade, slavery and more at the living history museum. Visitors who take a tour can enjoy historic recreations and demonstrations as they walk through fort. Those who would like to stay downtown can find no shortage of history as they pass spectacular sites such as the Cathedral of Saint Paul and the James J. Hill House. Sports enthusiasts can see the National Hockey League’s Minnesota Wild, the St. Paul Saints Professional Baseball Club or the National Lacrosse League’s Minnesota Swarm at one of the many venues.
Those who would like to escape outdoors often flock to the spectacular Voyageurs National Park. Here visitors can explore the Great Lakes by boat, kayak or canoe, touring the border between the United States and Canada. Adventurous outdoor enthusiast can follow the same route that voyagers discovered nearly 200 years ago, finding their way to Lake Athabasca. The numerous waterways offer adventurers a virtually never-ending escapade through otherwise inaccessible terrain. Those who would prefer not to camp can opt to take a houseboat out into the wilderness—because of the intricate and numerous waterways, cars have limited access to the park.
Those who would like to retreat to the woods can stop by Kabetogama State Forest, which offers numerous hiking trails and waterways for canoes and kayaks. Here visitors can enjoy stunning views from Wakemup Bay and Hinsdale Island. While the forest is stands as a spectacular testament to Minnesotan wilderness, it is often used as a gateway to the Superior National Forest. After touring the spectacular forests, visitors can continue onto the Superior National Forest, which offers more than 2,000 miles of trails for mixed recreational use. The forest is also home to the one million acre Boundary Waters Canoe Acre Wilderness hosts a unique and picturesque environment that both challenges and delights the adventurous spirit.
