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 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/
