There are definitely times we forget just how much we love our state – when we’re sitting in traffic from road construction, or perhaps standing in below freezing weather. So, here are 10 reason for you to live in Minnesota or move here or remind you that where your living is the best.

1. All Four seasons.

We may only know Minnesota as a very cold state, but there are definitely four-season weather patterns. Most times the winter tends to stretch for six months in a year and Minnesotans explore outdoor activities like snowboarding, snowmobiling, ice fishing and skiing. Even though Minnesotans experience thunderstorms in spring, it is still a very beautiful time of the year. Summers are quick, sometimes with heavy rainfalls, but it is the best time to go to the lakes and enjoy sun. Fall is a good time to go for walks or cabins and watch the change in colors.

2. The Twin cites has the best hiking trails in the nation.

From long treks along the rugged coast of Lake Superior to wandering the open spaces of the Minnesota River Prairie, you’ll find plenty of hiking opportunities in Minnesota.

3. Land of 10,000 Lakes.

The state does not actually have 10,000 lakes, it has more. The official number is 11,842 lakes. Minnesota is a giant aquatic play area not only for summer but winter as well.

4. Brewing Breweries.
