Southeast Minnesota Attraction Voted One of America’s Favorite Landmarks
Here in Minnesota, we're home to quite a few attractions that people travel from around the country and sometimes from around the world for (lookin' at you Mall of America). Of course, here in southeast Minnesota people travel here for Mayo Clinic and some may travel here to see something like the SPAM Museum. But there's one spot about an hour from Rochester, MN that was voted as one of America's favorite landmarks!
The small town it's in is southeast of Rochester and many people who live in the area have probably gone here before or at least have heard of it. And if you haven't been this is your sign to go since apparently it's one of the best places to check out in the US.
Make a day out of it and take a trip down to Harmony to visit Niagara Cave, recently voted as the 29th best landmark in America. This is according to a survey done by a company called Aqua Expeditions. From the survey, they ranked America's 250 favorite landmarks and Niagara Cave isn't the only Minnesota landmark to make the list.
At number 223 on the list is Mountain Iron Mine in Mountain Iron, MN (it's north of Duluth).
Coming in at number 195 is Mille Lacs Kathio State Park in Onamia (northeast of St. Cloud).
Next in the rankings at number 194 is Gooseberry Falls in Two Harbors.
Up in the same neck of the woods, coming in at number 179 is Devil's Kettle in Hovland (past Grand Marais).
And taking the top spot for Minnesota landmarks on the list is Niagara Cave in Harmony at number 29.
