I have nothing to brag about this state — long, snowy, and freezing winter that last for more than six months, corn- and soy fields take over 50 percent of land mass, no big tourist attraction (if you don’t count the Mall of America), and the geographical location alone just make it a boring place to visit.
I mean, who would just look at the map of the U.S. and say, “oh, I have some extra money, I want to visit Minnesota!” No, I would not do that either, because my ideal destination when I have some extra dough in my pocket would be somewhere with real beaches and coconut trees, not Minnesota!
But comes summer, this is the place of outdoor life!
I guess I can brag about that, and that we have more than 10-thousand lakes to keep everyone water-happy. 😀 It’s green every where, and there are lots of space. Kids get the priority of having free and well-kept public parks. I think there is a park/walking trail at every half a mile in this city.
This is the family-friendly state. Even O fell in love with it, although not at first sight.
Sometimes I just wish that the weather is always like this, and there is no cold winter to worry about. But that would take a severe effect of global warming to happen. So for now we enjoy every single day of warm summer that comes to us. I will worry about the winter later, perhaps in four months!
