The Best Free Thing To Do This Summer in Minnesota

The Summer of 2017 is flying by us, and there are a ton of great things to do here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. But THIS was recently named the Best Free Thing To Do in Minnesota. So what is it?

Gooseberry Falls State Park alone has a pretty spectacular waterfall, not to mention the many falls at Tettegouche State Park, too. (Although, they ARE state parks – so you do have to pay a fee to get in. It’s usually not too expensive, but I guess that rules them both out of a Best Free Thing To Do survey, doesn’t it?)
