Minnesota

Minnesota got its name from the Dakota word minisota, which means "water that reflects the sky". Minnesota is now known as The Land of Sky-Blue Waters or The Land of 10,000 Lakes. Minnesotans and visitors alike enjoy the abundance of water (actually well over 15,000 lakes) in this northern state throughout the year. There are countless places to enjoy activities such as hiking, biking, swimming, boating, golfing, camping, rock climbing, skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, snowmobiling and ice fishing in the great outdoors of Minnesota. The Boundary Waters Canoe Area is well-known as one of the finest places to paddle in North America. Urban activities are also plentiful in the vibrant Twin Cities (Minneapolis and St. Paul) with great music, theatre and art venues, top-rated restaurants and shopping (Mall of America). The urban lakes and parks offer countless outdoor activities right in the Twin Cities. Duluth, right on Lake Superior, is a midsized city right on Lake Superior in the midst of the amazing scenery “up north”. Minnesota is a great state for an adventurous honeymoon with a touch of urban flair.
