What are the best road trips to take through Minnesota?
We have a multitude of things to do in Minnesota, and there’s enough variety to comprise countless road trips. You can set out to explore local restaurants, or you can swing by our many waterfalls.
What bizarre trait is Minnesota known for?
There are many weird places in Minnesota, but our people are doubtlessly our weirdest trait. We’re known for being exceedingly friendly, but many locals shrug off this stereotype as just that – a mere stereotype. Although if we are going to be known for something, friendliness is a great attribute! However, there are many weird things locals do that are amazingly universal.
