I've never been to the four corners of Minnesota.

In fact, it really hadn't occurred to me that Minnesota has four corners -- or points -- until recently. Somebody in the Minnesota thread of Reddit posted a photo of the "furthest Southwest corner" of the Land of 10,000 lakes. As you can see below, it's pretty...boring.

Turning to Google Maps, I followed the state borders to the southwestern-most point and -- sure enough -- found a very near-identical view to the photo above including matching corn field, outcroppings of trees and farm buildings!

I have no desire to drive to the intersection of 100th Street and 488th Avenue to see it in person for myself. But it did lead me to wonder if I could find Minnesota's other three points. Let's take a digital tour and see what I found!

LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
