These 13 Incredible Riverside Parks Can Only Be Found In Minnesota

Minnesota is often praised for its lakes, but that doesn’t mean our rivers aren’t something to be envied as well. We have almost 70,000 miles of stunning rivers and streams winding their way throughout the state including the first 680 miles of the beautiful Mississippi. And almost better than having all this water, is having the riverside parks to enjoy it! We have plenty of options to pick from, but these are some of MN’s most stunning parks where we can see and even get out on our favorite rivers.
