photo 4

I’ve never been to Minneapolis. Never really had plans to either. We made a 2 day stop for work … and well, we checked out some pretty cool restaurants and of course scratched off the Mall of America from our bucket lists.

Here are some random facts about Minneapolis, MN:

  • Minnesota Inventions: Masking and Scotch tape, Wheaties cereal, Bisquick, HMOs, the bundt pan, Aveda beauty products, and Green Giant vegetables.
  • The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden is the largest urban sculpture garden in the country.
  • Minnesota has one recreational boat per every six people, more than any other state.
  • The Mall of America in Bloomington is the size of 78 football fields — 9.5 million square feet.
