Minnesota Bucket List


Spoonbridge and Cherry at the Walker Art Center

I must admit, I love my state. I love all the seasons, including winter. I love nature’s landscape, the rich theater scene, the wealth of music–I can’t imagine living anywhere else.

Our family manages to cross a few items off of our Minnesota Bucket List every year. Over the last decade we’ve visited the Sculpture Garden, Mill City Museum, the Stone Arch Bridge, the State Capitol, Lake Itasca (the Mississippi River headwaters), the North Shore of Lake Superior, and so much more. Yet, there are many sites, tours, museums, etc., we’ve yet to see and/or do.

My Bucket List is fluid. I’m certain I’ll add more items, and I look forward to crossing others off.

Which of these have you done? What’s on your home state Bucket List?

  1. Off the top of my head I can only think of one. I’ve been to the lovely and powerful Snoqualmie Falls a number of times, but I’d love to stay a night or two at the Salish Lodge up at the Falls. Oh, and my son tells me I must go see Palouse Falls in eastern Washington. He and his dad went last year.

    We have beauty everywhere in this state, and I’ve seen a lot of it, but I’m sure there is much more to see . . .

  2. Well, I think you should add our Clemens-Munsinger Gardens here in St. Cloud to your bucket list. One of my to do items on my bucket list is to visit the Minnesota History Museum.

  3. Maybe I’ll get to do some of these things when I go to Bethel University in the fall! I live in Colorado right now, and I have yet to climb a 14-er. I have gone hiking, skiing, and river fishing though!

    1. Hi Marissa E! You’re going to love Bethel! It’s a wonderful school.

      While attending, I hope you get to experience much of what Minnesota has to offer. Our winters are a bit harsher than Colorado’s, but it shouldn’t be that much of a difference for you.

      Enjoy your college years!
