Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes and also where the mighty Mississippi River begins, Minnesota is a playground of outdoor recreation and leisure pursuits during summer. Before heading up north, spend a few days in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, which anchor the state’s creative and cultural scenes. Prince’s legacy looms large – the iconic artist was a lifelong Minnesotan – and there are local treasures worth discovering. Whether it’s a pint of craft beer, delicious eats at the Minnesota State Fair, or a gooey, cheese-stuffed Juicy Lucy burger, everything you order here is indeed served with a smile and a side of that famous ‘Minnesota nice’.
