Minnesota is an outdoor adventurer’s playground, boasting almost five million acres of magnificent national forests, 500 golf courses and endless state, national and regional parks to hike and bike through. Home to 11,842, lakes (which would take over 30 years to get around if you visited one a day) and 69,000 miles of river including the headwaters of the Mississippi River, this is a state that loves the water. Go boating in a canoe or houseboat and fish for walleye, bass and trout, dining at tranquil lakeside restaurants with beautiful views. People here aren’t put off by the cold, either, with popular winter activities including snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, dog sledding and ice fishing.
Discover an array of fascinating historic sites including the childhood home of aviator Charles Lindbergh and the Pipestone National Monument, a sacred Native American quarry. One of the state’s most iconic attractions is the Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota, where the giant faces of four influential US presidents are carved into towering granite rock.
Urbanites should head to the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, buzzing cultural hubs where you’ll find some of Minnesota’s hippest restaurants and bars alongside cool art galleries and landmark architecture. Heavily influenced by the cities’ German, Norwegian, Irish and Swedish immigrant roots, the burgeoning Minneapolis-St. Paul foodie scene ranges from Minnesota’s iconic Juicy Lucy burger (a mouthwatering patty with molten cheese in the middle) to a diverse range of authentic international tastes. Feast on Vietnamese, Mexican and Somali flavours and experience the region’s growing food hall culture at culinary hubs such as Keg and Case Market and The Lynhall. Craft breweries, wineries, distilleries and cideries are also popping up in and around the city.
Just outside Minneapolis in Bloomington, the Mall of America is officially the largest indoor shopping centre in the United States. With over 500 shops and 60 restaurants, this is an unashamedly over-the-top example of American consumerism in all its glory. The complex also boasts an indoor amusement park, the Minnesota Sea Life Aquarium, multiplex cinemas and dozens of restaurants – you could easily spend a day or two here without getting bored.
