The Secret Garden In Minnesota You’re Guaranteed To Love

With so many lakes, forests, and state parks, it’s easy to find something to do outdoors in Minnesota. Even in the Twin Cities, there is plenty of green space to enjoy some time in the sun. But instead of heading to one of the most popular spots, like Lake Calhoun or Minnehaha Falls, why not try something a little off the beaten track? The Normandale Japanese Garden in Bloomington is the perfect place to get some fresh air without running into too many crowds. Better yet, this secret garden is seriously beautiful.

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/
