WELCOME TO MINNESOTA
From the snow-clad peaks of Eagle Mountain to the low shores of Lake Superior, Minnesota offers a dramatic landscape only found within one of the nation’s largest and most northern states.
Northern Minnesota was once the nation’s richest source of iron ore. Today, it houses one of the world’s largest open pit mines, the Hull-Rust-Mahoning Mine in Hibbing. Speaking of richness, the Twin Cities area is home to one of the nation’s highest concentration of Fortune 500 Companies. This includes Target, Best Buy, General Mills, and Land O’Lakes.
Nicknames for Minnesota include The Gopher State, the North Star State, the Bread and Butter State, and the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Which is misleading, considering the state technically has more than 11,000 lakes. Makes sense why the world’s first practical pair of water skis were invented in Minnesota.
