The Source of the Mississippi

Minnesota is where the great Mississippi River begins, but this river is only one of over 10,000 water attractions found in Minnesota. Bordering Lake Superior and containing over 13 million acres of water surface area, Minnesota is a paradise for outdoor watersports. Ice fishing, fly fishing, boating, sailing, swimming, waterskiing and ice-yachting are some of the many activities enjoyed by Minnesotans.

In addition to watersports, Minnesota is home to whitetail deer, bobcats, black bears, various game fowl, and the highest timber wolf population in the lower 48 states. These animals thrive in the wetlands, open prairies, and peaceful, birch, poplar and pine forests of this diverse state.
