You’ve chosen Minnesota as your next home?

Great choice! The Land of 10,000 Lakes has so much to offer -- small rural communities, outdoorsy lifestyle, bustling cities, and some of the nicest folks you’ll find anywhere. It might take a little time to get used to that accent, but before long you’ll be “youbetchya”-ing with the best of them!

Minnesota winters are pretty brutal, but if you can adjust to them, the rest of the year more than makes up for it. With gentle springs and summers and gorgeous falls, you’ll find plenty to love.
