1. Weather

Thinking of moving to "The Land of 10,000 Lakes"? Moving to Minnesota can seem intimidating when you hear stories about the ice, cold winters. Luckily, Minnesota is home to all four seasons! And we make the most of each and every part of the year. 

  • Spring - It may only be 40°F, but you'll notice Minnesotan's flocking to the streets in nothing but shorts and t-shirts. The bike rides resume, boats get prepared for the water, and everyone seems to have a little extra pep in their step. 
  • Summer - Hot & Humid, Minnesota is the best place to be in the summertime. Luckily, at least one of your neighbors likely has a boat to enjoy a warm, summer day on the lake.
  • Fall - The colors are so exquisite, you may not believe your eyes. Hiking along the river when the deciduous trees decide to turn every shade of yellow, orange, and red is a favorite Minnesota past time.
  • Winter - Often misunderstood, a Minnesota winter brings numerous activities! Even on the coldest days, you'll find Minnesotan's hovered around a campfire at a brewery or cross-country skiing at one of the many different parks throughout the metro area.
