Read More

The Great North, as many come to know Minnesota, is a state with a rich Nordic history, 18 Fortune 500 Companies, the land of 15,000 Lakes (The license plate says 10,000, but there are many many more), State of Hockey, Prince, Bob Dylan, Walter Mondale, Jesse Ventura and the host of the 2018 Superbowl between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots slated for this coming Sunday.? Minnesota is also a state that has stayed under the radar for many years, but about to become the center of attention to the world.

Before we all launch our Superbowl parties, break out the beer and dip and download our Sportsbook apps, let’s take a picturesque look at a state so rich in natural beauty and architectural freedom, that is warrants the right to host this little sports party.

We spent many years in Minnesota and have grown fond of the culture, lakes, great outdoors, warm Midwest charm and the old fashioned sense of family and home.

Now sit back and enjoy this beautiful look at the host state to the world, Minnesota
