If you have always been attracted to the northern reachs of America, and even if you are not, Minnesota should definitely be the next destination for you. This beautiful and expansive state is home to dozens of national and state parks, scenic rivers, and peaceful lakes. In fact, it is known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

Acres and acres of wilderness with miles of trails meandering through it are calling for outdoors lovers to camp there for a while and reconnect with nature. The park is dotted with lakes where you can take part in fishing, canoeing, and kayaking or choose to say close to dry land and swim or sunbathe at one of the beaches. Many new possibilities arise during winter, with ice skating, sledding, and cross-country skiing being some of the popular activities.
