My Top 10 Favorite Things About Minnesota


This was NOT an easy list to put together. There are So many great things, but they may not be my top things. Jake immediately mentioned the skiing, but I don't ski, so that wouldn't be at the top of my list. Everyone on the staff put together list, so you can see how we all have different interests. What would be on your top 10 list?

The “helpful/kind” attitude from strangers (I think of the beginning of the pandemic when I couldn't find toilet paper, and someone who listens to the show found some for me. I have endless examples of this!)

Jingle Ball-Not every city has a Jingle Ball, and I love the family-friendly event packed with so many artists!

Sweet Martha’s Cookies

MOA-Some people claim only tourists go here, and I do not agree with that at all. We go ALLLL the time. I've had some of my "coolest moments" here! It also felt right to combine this next one with MOA:)

No tax on clothing:)

Magical Snowy Christmas’ (I get SICK of the snow at some point like all of us, but I LIVE for a white Christmas!)

Lake Harriet-I LOVE all of the lakes of course, but my favorite is probably Lake Harriet. I love walking around it in the summer. I love the little restaurant. It's just lovely!

Stillwater Main Street- (I love Red Wing and cute local spots, but I find myself going to Stillwater a few times a year to eat and walk down main street and check out the antique stores etc)

Reese’s Puffs from General Mills-ENOUGH SAID!

Super Targets-I think we might be the only...or one of the only places that have Super Targets. I LOVE TARGET!
