Welcome to the Land of 10,000 Lakes, the home of tater tot hot-dish and the possibility of up to 9 moths of winter! Yes, the bold north, they call us and they also talk about our “Minnesota Nice”, which does exist, but may be slightly different than you were expecting. “What is Minnesota Nice?”, you ask. Well, it means we are very accepting of everyone, but we also aren’t going to sugar-coat things or baby you. We’ll invite you to dinner, but if you don’t like our hot-dish, you can just take yourself on to Perkins, then! Anywho, as a Minnesotan (born and raised), I thought I should show you some of the fun places to visit and activities to try when you travel to my home state!
