I explored many areas throughout Minnesota prior to our United States adventure. As I travel to the various parts of the country, I am always brought back to the beautiful state we lived in, at least in thought. Minnesota is the place where the northern pine forests meets up with the large deciduous trees along rolling hills in the Southeast and spreads out to the long flat prairie lands in the West. Minnesota does a wonderful job at exhibiting their history, natural landscapes, and culture to both old and young. When you come through, be sure to take a little time to explore what Minnesota has to offer.
