ST. PAUL, Minn., March 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- While there are thousands of reasons Minnesota consistently ranks as one of the best places in the United States to live, work and play, Explore Minnesota released an infographic that highlights 21 of the best things to do across the state. While The Land of 10,000 Lakes (actually 11,842 lakes) has something for everyone, part of its appeal is that it offers four distinct seasons, each with its own particular pleasures.
From bustling downtowns to untouched wilderness, pine forests to bluff country, and historic landmarks to modern-day attractions, Minnesota is incredibly diverse. Each year, millions of travelers discover the unique features that make the North Star State wonderful in the winter, charming in the spring, relaxing in the summer and picturesque in the fall.
According to Explore Minnesota's infographic, there are 500 golf courses, 18,000 miles of fishable rivers and six national park sites celebrating the U.S. National Park Service Centennial in 2016 — and that's just the start. Whether you're seeking the ultimate mancation, a girls getaway, family road trip or a weekend escape for culture or nightlife, Minnesota's sites offer respite for every traveler.
