The Land of 10,000 Lakes has produced a disproportionate share of major figures across many different disciplines. These include noteworthy celebrities like Prince, Bob Dylan, and Judy Garland, celebrated novelists Sinclair Lewis and F. Scott Fitzgerald, and political figures, such as Hubert H. Humphrey and Walter Mondale. Of all the famous Minnesotans out there, one of the most significant was the son of a Congressman from Little Falls: Charles A. Lindbergh II.

A visit to this Minnesota Historical Society site and state park should be on your bucket list. Visit the Charles Lindbergh House and Museum webpage for hours and visiting information. Check out AllTrails for hiking maps and suggestions in Charles A. Lindbergh State Park. If you’d like to dive even deeper into Lindbergh’s childhood in Minnesota, his book on the subject was republished in 2002 as Lindbergh Looks Back: A Boyhood Reminiscence – it’s a fascinating read that I highly recommend.
