About the BookIn the land where Paul Bunyan statues are big and Bigfoot tales are even bigger, the Jolly Green Giant overlooks the North Star State of Minnesota. 100 Things to Do in Minnesota Before You Die helps you navigate from Grand Portage on our northern border to Winona in the south while enticing you to try new outdoor activities, eat unusual foods, and sip flavorful beverages. Visit the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame, order popcorn from a 120-year-old popcorn wagon, and walk across the Mississippi headwaters at Itasca State Park. Explore the state by skis or by zip-line. Visit an underground state park or look to the sky to watch the Northern Lights.
