Overview

"My favorite sandwich is peanut butter, baloney, cheddar cheese, lettuce, and mayonnaise on toasted bread with catsup on the side." —Hubert H. Humphrey (former Senator from Minnesota)
Humphrey’s sandwich doesn’t include any of the top 5 food gifts from Minnesota—wild rice, potato lefse, lutefisk, maple sugar and syrup, or bison jerky—but it provides a glimpse into Minnesotans’ unique character. And favorite son Garrison Keilor isn’t the only Minnesotan with a sense of humor; St. Urho Day, created as a joke by a couple of Minnesotan Finns, is today recognized in all 50 states. And whereas all states have official flowers and birds, Minnesota has a state beverage (milk) and muffin (blueberry). Sounds like a good place for breakfast.
Its people are just one interesting facet of a state where travelers can find such fascinating curiosities as the SPAM Museum or the Museum of Questionable Medical Devices. And Uncle John cannot help but be enamored of a state with a town competing with cities in Illinois and New York to lay claim to the world’s only two-story outhouse.
