This Hidden Destination In Minnesota Is A Secret Only Locals Know About

Here in Minnesota, we know how to be the perfect tour guide to out-of-towners. We’ll smile through another trip to Mall of America, take snapshots of our guests in front of the Spoonbridge and encourage visitors to dip their toes into the chilly water of Lake Superior. But once everyone has gone home, we have our own local secrets that not all tourists are privy to – spots like this abandoned World War II-era factory.

The University has plans to begin redevelopment of the area in the coming years, so UMore Park may one day be much easier to visit. But while you likely can’t take your next visitor on a tour of this local secret, you can sure make them feel like a local by teaching them a piece of lesser-known Minnesota history. Do you know of any other hidden spots around the state?
