Minnesota: Cold Weather Fun and Fantastic Shopping
Minnesota has started to become a tourist destination, especially since the construction of the Mall of America in Bloomington. This is one of the biggest malls in the world, and the offerings include hundreds of retail stores, dozens of casual and fine dining restaurants, and even an ice-skating rink. Thanks to favorable state law, there isn't a tax on clothing purchases, so bring your wallet! Anyone who loves to ski will love it here, since the state is full of parks, trails, and beautiful ski resorts. Some of the best ski areas include the Afton State Park and Wild Mountain. "
