Spring Break has started and I for one am not going anywhere. No sunny beachside vacation for me, just getting plenty of sleep and reading. Not traveling doesn’t bother me because I love Minnesota. Minnesota is a beautiful place to live with really cool areas and awesome people. I love my college town (Winona, MN) a lot and I also love the cities. Here are some of the many reasons why I love Minnesota.
Minnesota is a beautiful state
I study Exercise Science and I like exercising outdoors. There are so many bike trails, lakes to walk, and forests to explore. If the weather is nice, I’d rather be outdoors than work out at the gym.
Minneapolis & The Geek Community
Since I have accepted myself as a full geek, I have really gotten involved with the community here. I love writing for Twin Cities Geeks in my free time, but I also love the conventions found in this state. There are so many I haven’t been to that I hope to attend once I graduate from school.
Our winters can be brutal. My lips get chapped and my hands feel like sandpaper. Once spring and summer arrive, this is such a great place to be. Minnesota summers are absolutely worth the harsh winters.
If you haven’t heard, we are nicknamed Minnesota Nice. The people here are incredible and I have some long-lasting friendships in this area. I couldn’t imagine leaving for another state permanently.
Also, there’s our incredible Science Museum which is really my favorite.. 🙂 If you need a place to visit, come check out Minnesota because it’s truly a great place to be.
