Earlier this week Buzzfeed asked users to tell them if certain things like brunch, bacon, summer, Taco Bell, and cats were overrated. Here are some things in our state I consider "overrated".

1. Mall of America

Tourist everywhere! It is a great place to kill time at if you end up with a layover at MSP Airport, or are trying to impress an out-of-state friend. Other than that, it is just a huge mall.

2. Lake Superior

This lake doesn't get above 41 degrees, ever. That makes it basically impossible to swim in. Plus it is huge, so finding the perfect fishing spot isn't easy either.

3. Minnehaha Falls

Sure it is cool that there is a giant waterfall right in Minneapolis, but again it is full of tourists. You're better off going somewhere where the paths aren't cluttered with people taking "group  nature selfies".

4. Our Numerous Roadside Statues

Paul Bunyon and Babe the Blue Ox, The World's Largest Crow in Belgrade, The Hairy Mosquito in Milaca. Who wants to bring the car to a screeching halt just to get out and take a picture?!

5. Lake Minnetonka

There are 10,000 other lakes in this state. Why does everyone want to be on this one?
