Legend has it the #OnlyinMN monument was hand-carved by Paul Bunyan himself, whittled from ancient Minnesota hardwoods into the massive structures you see today.
And though we're not sure if the stories are true, we're proud to say it's never been easier to find your next #OnlyinMN destination. Literally. The vibrant 40-foot-wide monument is not to be missed.
