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 need a place to visit, come check out Minnesota because it’s truly a great place to be.

I always enjoy Local Love posts!! I used to fly, so I loved visiting the Twin Cities in the summer time. Being from Florida, the -18F in the dead of winter when it was “too cold to snow” alway skilled me! 😉
Haha I can definitely see that! Yeah it was 50 degrees last weekend and I was in shorts. I’m used to the cold. I have never been to Florida but I want to eventually!

I’m from Thousand Islands NY, yeah, where the dressing was invented. Our winters suck, too.
Haha yay for awful winters.. I hear you. It’s so worth it once spring and summer hits. I also really love Fall but Winter? I’m over it.
I’ll admit I’m so much of a cold wimp since I’m a FL girl lol 🙂
Well that makes sense if you were born and raised in Florida. I am used to the cold but sometimes I still don’t enjoy it.
Okay, the number of cool places to visit in the States is increasing 😀 Good to know that you’ve embraced the Geek in you fully and wonderfully! ❤
Yeah definitely! The U.S has a lot of cool places I want to visit. I’m a geek 100%
I live in Charleston, SC. I wouldn’t be able to handle your winters. I would have to hibernate the entire winter season away. LOLZ! 😉
Haha I’m used to it so it’s not that bad. South Carolina awesome! That’s a beautiful state, it’s on my bucket list to go.
