Minneapolis, Minnesota

Minnesota offers a mix of intense winter adventures and small-town charm, home to more than 10,000 lakes and the stiffest winter weather around. One of our favorite trips is cruising on Highway 61, offering one of the more scenic drives in the country with views of Lake Superior, state parks, and out-of-the-way towns to enjoy. We are also big fans of the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area and the Minneapolis-St. Paul area with its thriving foodie and arts scene.

Some of Minnesota's most popular attractions include the Walker Art Center, Weisman Art Museum, Nickelodeon Universe, Sea Life Minnesota Aquarium, and the Mall of America in Bloomington, which is the biggest mall by square footage in the country.

If you operate a fleet, mobile health clinic, touring company, or any other service that requires transporting small or large groups, TESCO can help.
