Here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, we have more than a few things to keep us occupied in every season of the year. Dozens of state parks, countless nature areas – and of course the 10,000 lakes from which we got our nickname – all add up to create the backbone of our beautiful state. But sometimes? It’s good to get out and see the manmade beauty that Minnesota has to offer.

This road trip to some of Minnesota’s most unique roadside attractions is a tour of Minnesota’s quirky side, full of zany artwork and tributes to Paul Bunyan.
