Roadside Attractions, Minnesota: Voyageurs and Nature; Animals and Birds; Fish and - Things

"Minnesota's Roadside Architecture"
"Minnesota's Larger Than Life Wonders"
Minnesota Historical Society.

"The Minnesota Historical Society began documenting various 'roadside attractions' in Minnesota in the late 1960s. No specific addresses are given, as part of the adventure is to find them. Some attractions have been removed from this site for various reasons."

I counted. The name "Minnesota" appears five times. Well, I suppose they wanted to make sure you knew where these things were.

This isn't an exhaustive list, by any means. But it's a pretty good start.

One of my favorites is among the few with a photo: the Pelican Rapids Pelican:

They didn't feature another of my favorites: the Belgrade Crow.

Then, there's the Nevis Tiger Muskie.

I suppose you could say this is Minnesota's version of the barracuda.

Oh, man: I didn't get to the dinosaur. A really small one. Oh, well, there are other posts.
