The Vast Minnesota Swamp That Is Full Of Interesting Attractions
Minnesota is well known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes. But that’s not the only water contained within our great state. Not only are there rivers, ponds, and waterfalls, there are also wetland areas that are crawling with wildlife. One of the largest is the Louisville Swamp located within the sprawling Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge. This vast swamp is full of activity, and it’s well worth visiting for all nature lovers from Minnesota and beyond.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
