The Scenic Road Trip That Will Make You Fall In Love With The Beauty of Minnesota All Over Again 

Minnesota doesn’t get enough credit for its beauty. Most out-of-towners associate our state with Minneapolis and St. Paul. It is true that the Twin Cities are lovely and full of things to do. But there’s much more to Minnesota than the metro. And even when you cut out the state’s other popular destination – the North Shore – Minnesota still has plenty of beauty on offer.

Today, we want to remind you of some of it. Below, you’ll find a scenic road trip through southern Minnesota that will make you fall in love with our state all over again. It will guide you to beautiful lakes, waterfalls, prairies, and more. Read about the route below, then start planning your trip!
