Edition 36 You’ve probably heard that "The Big Game" is in Minneapolis this year, but did you know that Target HQ is in downtown Minneapolis, too? As you’d imagine, we’ve got lots of hometown pride and are super excited to show everyone highlights from our wonderful state. We also want to highlight some local specialties from Philadelphia & Boston, too, because everyone should be proud of their hometown.
Minneapolis, Minnesota
Minnesota is the Land of 10,000 Lakes (it says so right on our license plates). All four seasons are picture-perfect here, and yeah, it can get cold during the winter, but nothing can freeze our spirit of fun & adventure.
