Welcome to Minnesota. It’s a state unlike any other. Truly. We’re often recognized for our 10,000 lakes, our fresh air, Midwest work ethic and resilience, but we’re much more. Our state is home to more than 5.5 million Minnesotans, and our diversity of culture, environment and economic landscape means that we’re telling the honest truth when we say there’s something for everyone here.
