Minnesota

Often referred to as the “land of 10,000 lakes”, Minnesota gets the name honestly. There are so many lakes in the state that they don’t all have names, and are numbered instead. There are three distinct areas in Minnesota: the city, the north woods, and the western prairies. The city focuses on the Minneapolis-St. Paul area and is the main focus for business and industry. The north woods are only sparsely populated and used mostly for mining and forestry. The prairie areas depend strongly on agriculture and forestry. Despite being known for extremely cold winters, the state has a strong economy and an extensive educational system.
