Minnesota is known as the ‘Land of 10,000 Lakes’, the 2 largest lakes being water links to Canada: Lake Superior and Lake of the Woods. Lakes of graduated sizes and waterways, including the St. Croix River which borders Wisconsin and the headwaters of the Mississippi River, offer a liberal number of water activities across the entire state and in all seasons of the year.
Minnesota is also known as one of the cleanest states to live in. More than half of Minnesotans live in the twin cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, leaving enough of the rest of the state if you are interested in moving to a quieter and less populated area.

The nation’s economy has forced many families in every state into situations where lending institutions have taken action to recoup their losses and have foreclosed on their homes.
