Remember when Mall of America was the largest mall in the U.S. and 2nd largest in the world? Now it's only #2 in America and doesn't even crack the top 20 worldwide.

I live right near King of Prussia mall, and I'm pretty sure it's one of the biggest in the country.

Yes, one of. Third, to be exact. Two spots behind Mall of America, and just under half the size. Not sure why this is relevant information to post here.

I missed the Lake Wobegon one...woe is me. Now I hear Garrison Keillor's voice in my head and...it's not welcome.

You can remove the "famous" qualifier from the apple clue.

I know it's all a matter of taste but I think they are overrated. This coming from an apple farmer...such a pain to grow, but the amount of money I get for them is great. Try a Wild Twist if you can find one in your area.

Pretty easy for a Minnesota native, although I learned about the apple for the first time just a couple months ago.

Frostbite Falls was the first thing to pop into my head. Took me far too long to get the correct answer.

Small detail: it should read "in the contiguous US," not "continental US." Alaska is on the North American continent, thus is part of the continental US, but does not touch any other state so is therefore not part of the contiguous US.

Not that it needs to be in this quiz, but Minnesota has a unique oddity - a little peninsula called the Northwest Angle that can only be accessed by road by first crossing into Manitoba. That is, except for now - an ice road has been built, due to covid-related travel restrictions.

Washington has one too. Didn't know about Minnesota until it made the news recently and I looked it up on a map.

Minnesota has the Northwest angle because when the treaty was written to define the border between Canada and the US, it was defined by the course of certain rivers, but at the time, nobody was quite sure where they went.

Expected something about Fargo (the movie/show, not the city).

Fargo is very close to Minnesota but it's located in North Dakota

Level 75
Feb 9, 2021
You didn't read the part in brackets? The city is in North Dakota, the movie/show is set in Minnesota.

Only got 12 - not bad for a Brit though. A Husker Du question would have been a bonus, but a bit obscure for many people, I suppose.
