Because the town is so small (fewer than 400 people), I thought I would make it a one-stop shop on the #mnbucketlist. Plus I’m SUPER bias over this one… This is Nevis, MN. It’s in Hubbard County, near Park Rapids and is part of northern Minnesota’s Heartland Trail. It’s definitely a ‘cabin upnorth’ kind of town, with it being home to lots of camping and resorts. Fun fact: it is home to the world’s largest tiger Muskie – a 30-ft sculpture, right in the middle of town. It’s off Hwy 34 and is less than one square#mile but has some of the best lakes in Minnesota; Lake Belle Taine (most known) and the Crow Wing chain (West Crooked being my bias favorite). They also have Muskie Waters; an ice cream and coffee shop, a municipal liquor store (The Munie), where you can play pull tabs, listen to live music or read a book. Also there is Steve and Jill’s Steak and Pizza (now Leona’s) along with The Iron Horse Bar and Grill. Last, but not least is the creepiest daycare you will ever see in your entire life, Cookies. Seriously, the place looks like a ginger bread house, and if you ever read that book, it doesn’t end well. Complete with #Muskie Days and Pig Races, I mean, what more can you ask for?
