10,000 Lakes And The Mall Of America

Why visit Minneapolis, Minnesota? When most people think of Minnesota, they think of the cold hard winters, wind-chill below zero, and snow, lots of it. But there's more to Minnesota than meets the eye.

However, Minnesota boasts of 10,000 lakes. So if you like boating, water skiing, or fishing in Minnesota, you can do it all. Don't think we hibernate in the winter, because there's plenty of fishing to do, we just do it on ice. Drive by any Lake in Minnesota on a cold winter's day and you will see plenty of icehouses. We fish all year-round here, if it's cold, we just drilled a hole in the ice. We call that ice fishing.

Minnesota is also home of the Mall of America. Which is the biggest mall in the United States, would over 520 specialty stores, and tons of restaurants to suit any palate. Also located in the mall is Underwater Adventures, which houses 4500 sea creatures. Did I mention that it also has a huge collection of sharks and Stingrays?

This mall has it all, a dinosaur Museum, wedding chapel, movie theaters, and an indoor amusement Park called the Park MOA, former the Camp Snoopy.

Tired of walking, you can take the light rail from the Mall of America to downtown Minneapolis. It's 12 miles a track, some interesting points along the way, Fort Snelling, Minnehaha Avenue Park, Minnehaha falls, the Metrodome and the Target Center, just to name a few.

So now that you know, Minnesota is more than freezing temperatures, why don't you plan your next trip to this wonderful state. Bring your camera, and we will supply the fun. Come and see what Minnesota nice is all about.
