15 Reasons Why My Heart Will Always Be In Minnesota

As a Minnesota transplant, despite their undying love for the state, many native Minnesotans still ask the same question, “Why would you ever move here?”.

Even the state pride in Minnesota is something I have seen in few states. We have a wonderful sense of community and despite disagreements we wholeheartedly support, and even defend our state. Here are some of the other reasons why I choose to make Minnesota my home. Why do you?

Whether you still live here or not, share with us why Minnesota holds a piece of your heart.
