Why do most people book flights to Minnesota? The “Land of 10,000 Lakes” is a huge draw for Midwest tourists. Thanks to the bodies of water spread across the state, booking flights to Minnesota means a lot of outdoor activities for tourists. Visitors booking flights to Minnesota can camp in one of the state’s 72 state parks and recreation areas, or hike in one of the 58 state forests. Minnesota is home to numerous wildlife preserves controlled by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, and some vacationers book flights to Minnesota just to walk on some of the oldest rocks on the earth. But there is more to Minnesota than the great outdoors.

Many travelers book flights to Minnesota to visit the “Twin Cities”: Minneapolis-St. Paul is home to nearly 60 percent of Minnesota’s population. This metropolis is the center of transportation, business and industry to the state, and is also an internationally recognized arts community. Visitors booking flights to Minnesota visit the Twin Cities for a tour of the Weisman Art Museum, the Walker Art Center and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Many artists call Minnesota home including Prince, The Andrews Sisters and Bob Dylan.

If nothing else is of interest here, book flights to Minnesota for the shopping. Pack an extra suitcase on your Minnesota flight — The Mall of America in Bloomington is the size of 78 football fields and offers visitors a shopping experience unheard of in other states.

Getting around Minnesota

Trains cross the state and several bus companies provide transportation as well. Minneapolis and St. Paul, the Twin Cities, both have extensive skyway systems for walking around their downtown areas. The downtowns can also be reached by bus and old-style trolleys. Both cities have areas for sightseeing on foot and paddleboat cruises on the Mississippi. The Metropolitan Transit Commission provides transportation between the Twin Cities. Minneapolis also has the Hiawatha Light Rail that runs between the Warehouse District, Mall of America, and the airport. Most attractions in St. Paul can be reached on foot, but in Minneapolis you will need a car.

There are no roads in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, and transportation is via portage and canoe in summer and skis and dogsled in winter. Voyageurs National Park is best explored by boat. During freeze-up, usually December until March, the park is traversed on skis or snowmobile.

Although the northern part of the state focuses on outdoor activities, you can drive through some of the region and experience the greatness of this wilderness.

Minnesota Travel Information

  • More than 60 percent of Minnesota’s population live in the Twin Cities area of Minneapolis and St Paul, and this is where a large part of the tourism to the area is also based. However, the rest of the state has some stunning landscapes including prairies and forests. The Red River Valley, in the northwest of the state, was once covered with tall prairie grass and roamed by herds of buffalo. Today, State Parks are needed to preserve the way the countryside once stood naturally. Two of the best are Buffalo River State Park and Bluestem Prairie Preserve.
  • Bustling Minneapolis has all the attractions you’d expect from an urban center. Shopping, museums, restaurants and theaters are all available. Two sites are particularly worth visiting: Minnehaha Paek and the Walker Art Center. Minnehaha Park contains the creek and the Minnehaha Falls, a 53ft waterfall. Within the park, you can see a statue of Hiawatha carrying Minnehaha, based on Longfellow’s Song of Hiawatha. The Walker Art Center also contains sculptures, though of a slightly different nature, in its 11-acre sculpture garden. One of the most impressive, by Claes Oldenberg and Coosje van Bruggen, is a giant spoon with a cherry on the top. A fountain flows out of the tip and downtown Minneapolis is the backdrop. It has become a symbol of the city. Entrance to the sculpture garden is free.
  • Saint Paul is the capital of the state and a more historic city than adjacent Minneapolis. Cultural attractions are popular, including a tour of the Capitol Building. If you’re with children, however, don’t miss the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory, where the animals to see include camels, reindeer, giraffes, penguins, cougars, lions and gorillas.
  • The third-largest city of the state, Duluth sits at the top of Lake Superior. The town is focused around the waterfront and harbor. For a bird’s eye view of activity on the waterfront, visit Canal Park, where an aerial lift bridge connects Canal Park with Minnesota Point, a seven-mile sandbar. The views from the top of the bridge are stunning.
