Park Point Beach In Minnesota Is One Of The Most Stunning Lesser-Known Places In The U.S.

Minnesota is home to some truly spectacular attractions. Those who have never been here may not be aware of the sheer number of lakes, waterfalls, forests, and beyond that are open to hikers, swimmers, and everyone in between. But it seems that at least some people are wising up to all that Minnesota offers. For example, one upscale travel publication recently named Park Point Beach in Duluth, Minnesota as one of the top beaches in the United States. Being that it’s at least 1,000 miles from the beach in every direction, that’s pretty impressive. But once you visit, you’ll see why this beach makes the grade. Read on below to learn about Park Point Beach, one of the most stunning lesser-known places in the U.S.

For more information, you can go to the official Park Point Beach website.
