Minnesota has a lot of lakes, yes, but you’ll do more than zooming around on a jet ski when you land in this lush—and sometimes snowy—Midwestern metropolis. Minnesota is home to avid nature lovers, who aren’t put off by inclement weather. If it’s sunny, expect to spend the day hiking or fishing. If it’s snowing? Find the nearest ski slopes. When you’re looking for a scenic escape, take your pick of luxurious Minnesota resorts in the woodlands or book one of the top hotels in Minneapolis to stay in the middle of all the action.
You won’t have time to count all the bodies of fresh water in the “North Star State,” because you’ll be too busy running from your hotels in Minnesota to the next attraction every day, trust us. Don’t skip exploring the state’s ecological diversity, though. Minnesota is home to several forests and a vast array of indigenous flora and fauna. And when you say, “OK, enough with glorious nature,” treat yourself at the Mall of America in Bloomington—a mall so big, it has an amusement park right in the middle of it. For a night on the town in “The Mini Apple,” score some tickets to a play, and check out one of the biggest live theatre communities in the country. To look out over the Great Lakes, dine in Duluth. Not only is this waterfront city charming and easy on the eyes, its culinary scene is on the cusp of foodie heaven.
So what if you can’t float from one side of the state to the other? You’ll come pretty close. So pack your swimming suit—or snow shoes—and book cheap flights to Minnesota with Travelocity.
