Small, wooded glens appear in between expansive stretches of farmland along the Minnesota Heartland Scenic Drive. Seemingly endless prairies give way to neat rows of crops peppered with barns and grain silos. You’ll also see why Minnesota is nicknamed the Land of 10,000 Lakes. During the summer, simply roll down the windows and enjoy the fresh air and quiet atmosphere of Minnesota’s farm country.

From Fargo, US 10 heads east past seemingly endless swaths of prairie grassland before entering a fertile farming region dotted with lakes. Buffalo River State Park, near the North Dakota border, features a hardwood forest and more than 200 species of wildflowers and grasses, nearly 200 species of birds and some 40 species of mammals.
