Stories, legends and myths about Paul Bunyan were some of my favorite folklore when I was a child. We lived in Cass Lake, Minnesota for quite a few years and Bemidji, the site of the most well-known Paul Bunyan statue, was just up the road.

We have many photos of various members of our family in front of Paul and his blue ox, Babe. Be sure to visit Paul Bunyan when you visit Minnesota!

Lots of Minnesota attractions are those quirky Minnesota roadside attractions that make you want to get out of the car and take a family photo alongside the cement "critter."

"He's the world's largest onyx sculpture, carved in Mexican stone by a Swedish sculptor named Carl Milles who was inspired by a ceremony he had witnessed in Ponca City, Oklahoma.

The sculpture shows five Native Americans seated about a fire holding sacred pipes, while rising from the smoke is a very tall figure that Milles called The God of Peace, and whom Milles pictured to be speaking to all peoples.

"The word, God, apparently became a little too strong for some St. Paul activists and, in a 1994 multicultural ceremony, the work was renamed Vision of Peace. To St. Paulites in general, he's always been called Onyx John." Minnesota Curiosities: Quirky Characters, Roadside Oddities & Other Offbeat Stuff

Minnesota State Parks: Forestville Mystery Cave State Park is just one of the many state parks that can be enjoyed in every region of the state. Some, like Itasca State Park are world famous. Others are little known except by those who have discovered them. The most visited state parks include those along the North shore of Lake Superior including Split Rock Lighthouse State Park.

Jeffers Petroglyphs: A wallking path allows visitors to view the fossilized carvings of history recorded in this unusual place. Stop by the Visitor's Center to explore a number of permanent displays, several "rotating" exhibits, a multimedia presentation, a children's activity area, and the gift shop. Rest on benches covered with buffalo robes.

The Laura Engalls Wilder Museum is in Walnut Grove which was the setting for many of the Little House on the Prairie books. Exhibits in this museum of pioneering history include artifacts from more than a century of the lives of the people described in the books. Learn about Laura Ingalls Wilder's history and details of her writing which was all done right here on Rocky Ridge Farm.

The Sod House on The Prairie Though this is a rather little known Minnesota attraction, it is one to seek out if you have the time. This look back at how many early settlers lived is a sobering yet inspiring contrast to present day living.

National Eagle Center in Wabasha: Get up close to our national symbol, the American Bald Eagle. The four resident eagles are unable to live in the wild due to injuries. The eagle center is a popular Minnesota attraction where you are able to learn about eagles in a beautiful setting alongside the Mississippi River. While this is a great learning experience for children, people of all ages find it a "must see."
