Governor Tim Walz and Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan are on a mission to boost the visibility of Minnesota‘s fall tourism.
Today, the pair will be making a special visit to a state park near the southeast metro in order to highlight the opportunities that the state has to offer and to showcase the recent investments made in its state parks.
Earlier this year, Governor Walz signed a bill into law that allocated a whopping 150 million dollars into improving and modernizing the state‘s outdoor recreation system. With this initiative, the governor aims to provide residents with what he calls a “world-class“ outdoor experience.
The bill includes provisions for updating tourist locations such as state park facilities, trails, and campgrounds.
