1. Minneopa Falls
A little jaunt westward will land you at Minneopa Falls near Mankato. Pro Movers says, "These eight-foot-wide falls plummet forty feet into the water below. Well-designed surrounding trails and bridges allow you to catch some truly stunning views and photos of this famous waterway."
2. Niagara Cave
Reverse field and head southeast to Harmony to explore Niagara Cave, where, "Brave adventurers can head a mile underground through narrow grottos, stunning limestone formations, and a range of natural streams and waterfalls." The cave is open through October 31.
3. Spam Museum
Jump on Highway 218 South to Austin, home of the Spam Museum. Shouldn't this be a required visit for true Minnesotans? Pro Movers states, "The stylish exhibit mirrors a vintage shopping center and walk you around the world to see how spam has made an impact since its creation in the mid-20th Century." Also, it's free.
If you have a little extra time, Wisconsin has the Mars Cheese Castle in Kenosha, the Apostle Island Sea Caves along the northern coast and the National Mustard Museum, which should be paired with your stop at the Spam Museum, in Middleton.
