Officially, Minnesota is the Land of 10,000 lakes. In reality, there are over 11,000 lakes, 69,000 miles of rivers and streams, and over 10 million acres of surface water in the state. No wonder many outdoor activities in Minnesota involve water. Water skiing, boating, and canoeing – take your pick. Fishing is also a popular activity in Minnesota. It is so popular, in fact, that even winter is not an obstacle. Ice fishing has been around since the arrival of Scandinavian immigrants.
The state is home to some of the oldest rocks on the planet. One such rock is an estimated 3.8 billion years old. Almost as old as our planet Earth. And you can find it on the side of the road, in Granite Falls, MN. There are also some younger rocks, of about 2 billion years old, in Jay Cooke State Park and Soudan Underground Mine Park. If you are lucky enough, you may be able to score a permit to go fossil hunting.
It’s not all about outdoors in Minnesota. The state boasts strong education, with the second highest share of high school graduates and 91.5% of people age 25 and older holding a diploma. Minnesota’s economy is on the rise and the state’s unemployment has remained below 4 percent in the past two years. The cultural vibrancy of the state is also undeniable. Theater, museums, dance, literature – whatever your art-loving heart desires.
