Places to visit in MN

Tim Bewer is one of the many great people I met while volunteering on the Dean campaign. Besides his politics, he's also a travel writer, and the author of a Minnesota travel book (buy it!).

Recently, he had an article in the Star Tribune on 10 places in Minnesota "you've probably never visited, but should."

Since the Strib nukes its archives, here's an abbreviated list:

  1. Jeffers Petroglyphs Historic Site
  2. The Twine Ball
  3. Otter Tail County
  4. Julian H. Sleeper House Museum, St. Paul
  5. Lac qui Parle State Park
  6. George Crosby Manitou State Park ("first Minnesota state park designed solely for backpackers")
  7. Lake Bronson State Park
  8. Banning State Park
  9. Moorhead (yes!)
  10. The Finnish settled town of Embarrass
