300 Bemidji Ave N, Bemidji, MN 56601, USA
Lots of towns in Minnesota's north woods claim to be the birthplace of Paul Bunyan, but trust me: Bemidji is the real deal. A completely accurate, 100 percent authentic, life-sized statue of the 18-foot lumberjack towers over a park on Lake...
Save Place
Duluth, MN, USA
I've been to Duluth, famous for its harbor and hills, many times. I knew that further north lay beautiful hiking, and that the Superior Trail actually ran right through Duluth, but little did I know about this hidden gem, the Congdon Trail, right...

38 Snelling Ave S, St Paul, MN 55105, USA

Save Place
30 N Mississippi River Blvd, St Paul, MN 55104, USA
Dangle your legs of this cliff's edge, if you dare. I didn't, but the view of the mighty Mississippi River from Shadow Falls Park was still spectacular. This is a quiet place for a small picnic—or for contemplating life. Once you've had your fill...
