Why "The North?"

Minnesotans have organized a push to call themselves “The North” as opposed to the Midwest (or plains, or “fly-over country” as our friends on the coasts like to call us). Some folks may think it’s a little quirky to have a movement creating your own region for one state, but that kind of mentality is what makes Minnesota unique. Sometimes it drives us a little crazy, but that is what makes Minnesota special. We’re proud of Minnesota’s quirkiness.
