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.

Most family vacation destinations in Minnesota include beautiful family vacation resorts, cabins, and dozens of state parks and many other top family vacations spots.

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.
