Welcome to Minnesota

Only in Minnesota

Today, Minnesota is still known for its breath-taking wilderness. Outdoor recreation is plentiful throughout the state with Voyageurs National Park, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, 66 state parks, 58 state forests and two national forests.

At the centre of the state is Minneapolis/Saint Paul – an international gateway with theatres, galleries and museums; this is a cultural hotspot with a national and global influence. For the sports lover, the cities boast some leading sports teams including the Minnesota Twins baseball, the Timberwolves basketball, the Wild hockey and the Vikings football teams, and it even held the Super Bowl in 2018 and the Ryder Cup in 2016.

The ultimate shopping paradise can be found at Mall of America, with further brand names being featured at the Nicollet Mall in Minneapolis and trendy boutiques located on Grand Avenue in Saint Paul. Located just five minutes from the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport in Bloomington, Mall of America features more than 520 stores, an aquarium, themed restaurants, movie theatres, two hotels directly connected and even an indoor theme park…Nickelodeon Universe! And let’s not forget clothing and shoes are TAX FREE in Minnesota!

Minnesota visitors delight in the diverse attractions offered throughout the state. Cruise on a riverboat along the Mississippi, canoe in an unspoiled wilderness, attend a world-class concert or enjoy water sports.
