Roadtrip across MN

Hello, I'll be making a road trip next summer across MN and would like to know if anyone has visited, or would recommend seeing the following: The Jolly Green Giant statue and the Spam museum.

Also, is there anything else to lookout for along the way?


Thanks.

Are you going up to Northern MN at all? If so North Shore is very scenic.

The SPAM Museum is cool. Not sure about the big guy. As for most of MN being bland; Cody is kind of right. You just have to know how to traverse it to get the most out of MN. The world's largest ball of twine is cool out in Darwin. Just so you can say you've seen it and it's a chance to see some Americana. If you are headed north then the North Shore is spectacular.

The ball of twine would be perfect! That definetly is a "roadtrip" thing! Unfortunately, it seems a bit further north than I want to go. I think I'll stick to the Spam museum.

Not sure if brewery's are your thing, but schells would be one worth stopping at. Oldest one in MN

Good call! Beer is always worth the trip.

Check out DDD for good eating places. Most every small town has a good cafe.

Brau Brothers brewery is 30 miles north off I-90 in southern MN.

Also mystery cave in southern mn is really cool.
