Whether you believe it exists or not, the Land of 10,000 Lakes is famous for its Minnesota Nice. But there are a few things that make Minnesotans not-so-nice: snowless winters, lost Vikings games, and the entire state of Wisconsin – to name a few.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
