Minnesota is the home of fine fishing waters, great golf greens, plenty of bike trails, and smooth pavement for bike riding. Scenic canoe routes engulf the Boundary Waters Canoe Wilderness Area. Winter enthusiasts will find top-notch ski and snowmobile trails, as well as downhill ski and snowboard areas. Family fun is the main focus at the water parks, zoos, and amusement parks in Minnesota. Valleyfair Amusement Park is the most popular park in Minnesota. The park ranges from kiddie rides to jaw dropping rollercoasters. Each season Valleyfair offers a variety of great live entertainment shows. Shows range from singer/dancer ensembles to shows that highlight PEANUTS characters, there is something for every member of the family to enjoy.
