We live here, but we can still be tourists! There are some places in our land of 10,000 lakes that I've never been but have always wanted to go to. The main reason why I haven't gotten to see some of these places is time. Just not having enough to carve out a long weekend, or use my vacation to travel north instead of south. According to MSN Minnesota's most underrated tourist spot is...Voyageurs National Park.

The blurb on Voyageurs states;

Even though the park is not the most famous place for camping because most campsites are quite remote (you will actually need a boat to reach them), it is a great place for an outdoor overnight adventure. So if you’re looking for peace of mind, isolated camping and a copious number of water activities, consider this park. If you don’t have your own vessel, go on a guided boat tour to see the natural beauty of the park. The topography of the park is rugged and varied; rolling hills are interspersed between bogs, beaver ponds, swamps, islands, countless small lakes and four large lakes.

Besides the traditional warmer weather activities Voyageurs National Park also boasts a lot of winter activities as well! You can snowmobile, snowshoe, ski, sledding, skating, and winter camp at the park.

So knowing that, how about you pack your bags, buy some hand warmers and head up for a quiet weekend away from it all and enjoy the "most underrated tourist spot" Minnesota has to offer!
