Located in the heart of the Midwest, Minnesota is often known as the "Land of 10,000 lakes," and is the home of the beginning of the Mississippi River, the world's 3rd largest river. Minnesota holds a rich history and is home to over 15 Fortune 500 companies, the exciting Twin Cities metro area, and the vast agricultural, mining, reservation and prairie lands of greater Minnesota.

I invite you to explore Minnesota's roots and visit the abundant historical elements throughout the state. Along the way, make a stop at the second largest state fair in the nation, Minnesota's State Fair, and enjoy one of over 60 types of various food on a stick, lounge in one of the most visited park destinations in the county, the Lake Harriet/Lyndale Park of Minneapolis, or spend a few days on one of Minnesota's 11,842 lakes.
