Located in the northern Midwest portion of the U.S., Minnesota is a state that is rich in political and social demographics. Minnesota has three nicknames, with the most well known being Land of 10,000 Lakes. This is just an understatement, however, because there are over eleven thousand lakes and the terrain is made of the oldest rock found on Earth. To say the scenery of Minnesota is a must-visit does not go far enough. There is so much to learn and more to preserve in the eighty-seven thousand square miles of land.

While Europeans first came to Minnesota with the fur trade, population quickly grew after a military fort was built in 1825. The economy has moved from the fur trade and logging, to farming and technology. The population continues to blossom and St. Paul, Minneapolis, and Rochester are three of the biggest cities the state has to offer. Outside of the main cities, Minnesota is just known as Greater Minnesota, as much of the population is based in the Twin Cities metropolitan area.

Minnesota has something to offer everyone. There are things for sports lovers, lots of outdoor recreational items for nature enthusiasts, and a lot of various types of art. With the many festivals, families of all sizes can enjoy rich American history and culture.
