Here is One Wonderful Thing to Do
in Each of These Cities and Towns in Minnesota

Cities in Minnesota

The most well known, and most visited cities in Minnesota, are the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. The vacation opportunities in this area are unmatched anywhere...a historic city exuding European charm and a bustling entertainment-loving city just across the river.

Duluth is the next "most visited" city in our state. As the gateway to the North Shore of Lake Superior, this cool city is a hotspot for tourists.

Populations in cities in Minnesota range from more than half a million in the combined Twin Cities to just five in the tiny town of Funkley.
