Why do most people book flights to Minnesota? The “Land of 10,000 Lakes” is a huge draw for Midwest tourists. Thanks to the bodies of water spread across the state, booking flights to Minnesota means a lot of outdoor activities for tourists. Visitors booking flights to Minnesota can camp in one of the state’s 72 state parks and recreation areas, or hike in one of the 58 state forests. Minnesota is home to numerous wildlife preserves controlled by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, and some vacationers book flights to Minnesota just to walk on some of the oldest rocks on the earth. But there is more to Minnesota than the great outdoors.

Many travellers book flights to Minnesota to visit the “Twin Cities”: Minneapolis-St. Paul is home to nearly 60 per cent of Minnesota’s population. This metropolis is the centre of transportation, business and industry to the state, and is also an internationally recognized arts community. Visitors booking flights to Minnesota visit the Twin Cities for a tour of the Weisman Art Museum, the Walker Art Center and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Many artists call Minnesota home including Prince, The Andrews Sisters and Bob Dylan.

If nothing else is of interest here, book flights to Minnesota for the shopping. Pack an extra suitcase on your Minnesota flight — The Mall of America in Bloomington is the size of 78 football fields and offers visitors a shopping experience unheard of in other states.

When is the best time to fly to Minnesota?

Peak Season:

Summer and winter are the high seasons. Snow-sport enthusiasts book flights to Minnesota for the first snow. Summer is busy with outdoor activities such as boating, fishing, and camping. Despite the heat, the cities are crowded in summer, and visitors take advantage of surrounding lakes and beaches.

Fall is a popular time to visit for the foliage, both in the cities and wilderness. 

Off Season:

Winter is the off season in the cities, but be prepared to dress for the bitter cold. Spring is also a good time for visiting the cities and white-water activities.

Getting around Minnesota

Trains cross the state and several bus companies provide transportation as well. Minneapolis and St. Paul, the Twin Cities, both have extensive skyway systems for walking around their downtown areas. The downtowns can also be reached by bus and old-style trolleys. Both cities have areas for sightseeing on foot and paddleboat cruises on the Mississippi. The Metropolitan Transit Commission provides transportation between the Twin Cities. Minneapolis also has the Hiawatha Light Rail that runs between the Warehouse District, Mall of America, and the airport. Most attractions in St. Paul can be reached on foot, but in Minneapolis you will need a car. 

There are no roads in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, and transportation is via portage and canoe in summer and skis and dogsled in winter. Voyageurs National Park is best explored by boat. During freeze-up, usually December until March, the park is traversed on skis or snowmobile.

Although the northern part of the state focuses on outdoor activities, you can drive through some of the region and experience the greatness of this wilderness.
