About Minnesota

Minnesota is often known as the land of lakes, since the state offers thousands of square miles of untouched northern wilderness, much of it covered by tranquil, glassy rivers, lakes, and waterways. Find a beautiful secluded vacation rental or a quiet cabin in the Minnesota woods and experience this landscape for yourself. Wake up in the morning in your private cabin and enjoy a cup of coffee, then head out onto the water in a canoe or kayak and watch the sun rise over the pines. Listen to the sound of the loons and the gentle waves lapping the pebbled shores of your own private Minnesota paradise. This is a perfect place to spend your days hiking, exploring, and fishing. In the evening, come home and grill the day's catch for your friends and guests. If you prefer downtown adventures, spend your day on the golf course or relaxing in a world-class spa. After the sun goes down, enjoy the spectacular dining and nightlife opportunities that the Minnesota cities have to offer.
