Minnesota Tourism & Visitor Guide
Welcome to Minnesota!
Carved by glaciers centuries ago, Minnesota is now known as the Land of Ten Thousand Lakes. East Minnesota borders Lake Superior, the largest of the Great Lakes and the largest body of freshwater in the world. Northwest Minnesota is home to Bemidji, an old logging center with a historic downtown and a place in its heritage for the legendary lumberjack Paul Bunyan. The Twin Cities—Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota's capital—are vibrant and alive with the cultural arts and a heavy emphasis on professional sports. The large metro area, separated by the Mississippi River, has more theatres, dance companies, and concert venues per person than anywhere in the U.S., excluding New York City. America's largest shopping center, the Mall of America, is located in Bloomington, and features an amusement park, 520 shops, and 14 theatres. South Minnesota is mainly farmland on the edge of the Great Plains. And, the world famous Mayo Clinic is located in Rochester.
