Drive On This Minnesota Road For A Truly Nail-Biting Experience
If there is one thing Minnesota is known for, it’s certainly not its elevation. Our state is mostly flat, with our highest point just 2,301 feet above sea level. The upside of this is that we don’t have to brave mountain passes or roads with sheer drops. But there is one road in Minnesota that can be a nail-biting experience – especially if your driver is afraid of heights. Let’s take a look at what road it is, why it’s scary, and what sights you can see if you choose to brave the drive.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
