    Awesome! I’ve always wanted to go fishing in MN! So many other great ideas too!

    🤣 Number 12 I thought for a quick moment that you were referring to the Target shopping center! I have yet to visit Minnesota yet, so I greatly appreciate this list!

    Such a huge list of so many things to do in summer. My guess is I would need a few summers to have all that fun!

    I pinned this because I want to go to Minnesota one day. I had coworkers that are from there and they talked about it all the time! These are great suggestions on what to do there!

    Lots of great things to do! Pinning! Thank you!

    Great list of ideas for those in the MN area & many that can be applied anywhere as well! Thanks!

  • Reply Michelle May 31, 2019 at 2:02 pm

    I’m going to try to sub in Texas for some of these and see if it will spring some summertime creativity for me!

  • Reply jen May 31, 2019 at 2:08 pm

    Great list!

  • Reply Margaret May 31, 2019 at 3:21 pm

    Thanks for the amazing list! I love the idea of a drive in movie. I did not know that those still existed. That would be so fun to do!

  • Reply Jennifer Morrison May 31, 2019 at 6:32 pm

    I love Minnesota. I think that it is filled with very friendly people and so much to do! On my next trip I will have to take advantage of some of these suggestions. Especially the waterfalls.

    • Reply TONYA June 2, 2019 at 1:37 pm

      You won’t regret it! The waterfalls are so beautiful.

  • Reply Karla June 1, 2019 at 1:44 am

    Oh my goodness! Something for everyone! Tell us lots of stories this summer!

    • Reply TONYA June 2, 2019 at 1:37 pm

      I’ll sure do that Karla!

  • Reply Tiffany June 1, 2019 at 8:27 am

    Love summer to do lists! Bring on the adventures!

  • Reply Michele June 1, 2019 at 11:48 am

    An old high school friend lives in Minnesota and is always bugging me to visit. That picture sure makes it tempting!

  • Reply Meagan June 2, 2019 at 8:19 am

    Great list! We have family in Minnesota so these are good things to keep in mind next time we go visit!

  • Reply Lina June 2, 2019 at 9:06 am

    I love MN in the summers! There is really no reason to leave MN in the summers. This is why we live here. And to give us reasons to leave during the long winters. I love your list! Pinning it as well 😉

    • Reply TONYA June 2, 2019 at 1:36 pm

      Thanks Lina! You’re so right…leave MN in the winter, not the summer!

  • Reply Pauline June 2, 2019 at 9:33 am

    What a great list. I’ve never been to Minnesota, but I’ll be sure to save this should we go. Love that you have adult and kid activities.

  • Reply Tricia Snow June 2, 2019 at 1:05 pm

    I love the fishing idea! Looks like a great list! Thank you for sharing!

  • Reply Dawnmarie @ EnjoyingtheDays June 3, 2019 at 10:24 am

    This is such a helpful article because, being in The South, I do not know much about Minnesota except that it is cold. There is actually LOTS to do for entertainment and learning!

  • Reply Angela Greven | Mean Green Chef June 3, 2019 at 12:53 pm

    Great list I’ve never been but would love to see it! Craig lived in Egan MN for a while, says it’s beautiful but darn cold! They sailed their family sailboat down the Mississippi.

    • Reply TONYA June 4, 2019 at 12:55 pm

      That’s really cool! It can definitely get cold, although right now, you would never know it. It’s getting soooo warm and humid!

  • Reply Jill June 3, 2019 at 2:38 pm

    I learned that there are many water-featured activities in Minnesota that don’t involve ice fishing! Loved the 50 ideas!

    • Reply TONYA June 4, 2019 at 12:54 pm

      Who would have ever guessed, right?! Lol!

  • Reply Kymberly Irwin June 3, 2019 at 6:49 pm

    Pinned this to my Travel Adventures!! I’ve never been to Minnesota, but my childhood bestie lived there for a few years and loved it. Thanks for sharing such a great list!

  • Reply Cindy June 4, 2019 at 12:45 pm

    Great list! We really can have fun in our own backyards. I’m inspired to make a list of things to do in my city…and in my state.

  • Reply Malia June 6, 2019 at 2:00 pm

    Wow, what a list! At first I thought you had spelled bicycling wrong when you wrote “biercycle”, but no, it’s an awesome thing that I need to go do in Minnesota! So fun!

    • Reply TONYA June 6, 2019 at 2:09 pm

      Every time I see it, it catches me off guard too! 🙂

  • Reply T.M .Brown June 8, 2019 at 4:27 pm

    You had me at waterfalls, but I love the idea of lighthouses and breweries, too! Great compilation!! Here’s hoping we get to Minnesota some day!
