Minnesota is a state in the Midwestern and northern regions of the United States. Minnesota is bounded by the Canadian provinces of Manitoba and Ontario to the north, by Lake Superior and Wisconsin to the east, by Iowa to the south and South Dakota and North Dakota to the west. It became the 32nd state of the Union on May 11, 1858. This U.S. state is 12th largest state with the total area of 84.068 square miles. With more than 5.4 million people calling Minnesota home, it is the 21st most populous state in America. The name "Minnesota" comes from the Dakota Indian name "Minisota," which means sky-tinted water. The state has a large number of lakes, and is known by the nickname "Land of 10,000 Lakes". The capital city of the U.S. state of Minnesota is Saint Paul but most populous and the largest city is Minneapolis.

Climate in Minnesota

Because of its size and its location in the middle of the continent, Minnesota has changeable weather. Cool polar air masses sometimes sweep across the state from Canada. Prolonged periods of heat, however, often result from the warm, moist air that moves northward from the Gulf of Mexico. So, Minnesota weather can be quite changeable, so it’s important to bring layers of clothes for varying temperatures.
